The American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA), founded in 1974, is a national not-for-profit association of professionals working in the areas of affirmative action, equal opportunity, and diversity. We help our members to be more successful and productive in their careers. We also promote understanding and advocacy of affirmative action to enhance access and equality in employment, economic and educational opportunities.
AAAA’s Professional Development and Training Institute (PDTI) has been a primary sponsor of quality training in equal employment opportunity (EEO) and affirmative action law and policy since 1991. PDTI faculty consists of experienced educators who understand both the theory and the applications of EEO, affirmative action and diversity law and policy. PDTI offers the Certified Affirmative Action Professional (CAAP) and Senior Certified Affirmative Action Professional credentials (Sr. CAAP). PDTI also offers certificate programs. PDTI courses are eligible for continuing education credits awarded by the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI).
In 2013, AAAA will offer both classroom and on-site training at the facility of your choice. We will work with you to design the coursework that fulfills your needs, ranging from conducting effective internal investigations to developing a compliant workplace. AAAA also will offer a series of webinars for the busy professional who does not have time or the resources to travel for classroom training. We are proud of the excellence of our webinar faculty and urge you to sign up for timely and topical programs.
