On-site workshops are not being scheduled at this time
On-site workshops offer comprehensive learning that covers the full range of Atlas.ti’s features and capabilities, preparing researchers to use the program powerfully in either individual or team contexts. Close to 300 workshops have been held all over North America - see listing below.

Workshops are tailored to your needs, varying in duration, number of participants, and format. The cost is $3,200 per day academic/govt/non-profit ($4,500 corporate), plus travel and sundry costs. To arrange a workshop please contact us by email .

Workshop formats Number of participants
Choose between standard three-day or intensive two-day

Standard 3 day
After gaining a complete understanding of the program’s design and features, we learn how to use the program in a wide variety of qualitative projects, from the most structured to the most unstructured. The objective is to learn how the analytic steps of a research project are “translated” into tasks that Atlas.ti can perform. We then learn how to operate all features of the software, with ample time for extended practice, individual coaching, and commencing work on projects.
Where all participants are working on the same project the curriculum can be adjusted to best serve your needs. For example, we may focus all three days around the specifics of the project, or alternatively conduct an intensive two-day workshop first, and then spend the third day applying what has been learned to the beginning stages of the projects.
In some cases it is more productive to initially conduct only an intensive two-day workshop on-site, after which the team begins work on the project and utlitizes our telephone and on-line project consulting, coaching and advanced training services on an as needed basis. This format includes 15 hours of distance asistance following the workshop with no time limit for utilization.

Intensive 2 day   (available in Pacific and Mountain time zones)
The curriculum is the same as for the standard workshop, except that there is less time for extended practice and individual coaching. To take best advantage of this intensive format we recommend that participants have collected some of their data so they are able to begin work on their projects soon after the workshop. These 2 day workshops are also offered regularly in Santa Barbara.

Determines the character of the training

Up to 10 participants
This is the ideal number, allowing maximum one on one coaching throughout, and significant attention to the design of each person's project.

10-15 participants
In a standard three day workshop there is still time to devote sufficient personal attention to each participant. However in an intensive two day workshop with more than 10 participants, each person has to take more responsibility for their own learning, as there is less time available for personal attention and one on one coaching.

More than 15 participants
With more than 15 participants the character of the workshop changes, regardless of format. The same curriculum is covered, but each person has to take much fuller responsibility for their own learning as there is very little time for personal attention to each participant.

Where there is a need to train a larger group than 15, we customize the format to offer two intensive workshops over 3 days instead of 4, or two standard workshops over 5 days instead of 6. Please email for further details.
