Be Our Guest

When traveling to ATI’s headquarters, our goal is to make your visit with us enjoyable, comfortable, and worry-free.

ATI’s training center is conveniently located at ATI’s headquarters near Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), shuttles, hotels, and restaurants. Our facility has six state-of-the-art classrooms and features the following amenities:

  • Ample, free parking
  • A client luggage room to secure your things while you’re in class
  • Restrooms that are plentiful and spacious
  • A cafeteria that seats 65 and has a full kitchen that served over 9,000 scrumptious meals, last year alone
  • Four conference rooms—you will have no problem scheduling private time with your coach
  • A tranquil walking path behind the building that winds around a pond in the woods
  • Finally, for you seafood lovers, we are right down the street from the famous G & M restaurant, which is the most famous crab-cake location in Maryland. Chubby’s mom used to send him there to pick up crab cakes when he was able to stop by and visit her.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home!
