With many of our trainings switching to virtual platforms, several out-of-state providers who have been asking about our CEUs and their licensure. We have complied answers to many questions and have listed them on our new FAQs about CEUs page. Hopefully we were able to answer your questions on the page.

Dear ATSA colleagues and friends,

We did it!  Thank you so much for all of you who participated in the 2021 Conference!  The board was incredibly excited for our first all-virtual conference that went flawlessly.  David Prescott and Paul Carrola provided much needed education and encouragement as we continue through the end of this pandemic. 

As we continue in 2021, ILATSA is making plans to provide access to the same great trainings that we were able to provide in 2020.  With the assistance of the Illinois Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB), ILATSA is planning to offer additional STATIC/STABLE trainings, and we are looking forward to offering a course on supervising new sex offender treatment providers.  We look forward to these trainings this year. 

As always, your comments and suggestions are welcomed. Feel free to contact the ILATSA board at or me at

Thank you for your work,
