It is the sole training institution and certification authority officially certified by Antminer.

In August, ATA announced the upgrade on its course plan, to attract more talents with more course setting options, in the hope to prepare more qualified professional staff for the industry. 

Currently, the core course of ATA is maintenance training, with the upgrade presently including the 19 Series training program. Also, it now has two options in terms of training periods –a long-term training program lasting two weeks, and a short-term training program lasting five days only – each class now scaled down to eight participants, with the option of elective courses to match the needs of different groups. Successful course participants will qualify for a “Certificate of Accomplishment”, which will include an assessment of their skill level.

Only those who sit through the night could embrace the first ray of sunshine. Bitmain will keep on the Hashrate-centered strategy to advance the evolution of the entire industry and keep on forging ahead to explore more possibilities.
