ACAT’s Teacher Certification Program (TCP), which operated from 1967-2018, was the first and longest running program in the United States. ACAT’s faculty came from various backgrounds and related professions, giving trainees experience with a rich array of approaches.

Alumni work in private practice, at health clinics and studios, and as faculty at prominent institutions, including The Juilliard School, Yale School of Drama, N.Y.U.’s Tisch and Steinhardt Schools, and many more. As a membership organization, ACAT also fosters a vibrant post-graduate community, providing ongoing training, workshops and events.

ACAT’s Teacher Certification Program was an AmSAT certified three-year, 1,600-hour course. Trainees attended class for 16 hours per week, 30 weeks per year.
