Instructor Compensation

Share |

Your compensation is comprised of multiple components, making up a full package of benefits which includes an honorarium payment for teaching, travel and lodging expenses, and per diem.


The following expenses are allowed for reimbursement:

  • Estimated round-trip coach airfare* or mileage if you choose to drive
  • ATI pays for actual lodging costs. If the course is being held at a hotel, we recommend that you ask for the Group Rate for the instructors. Lisa can tell you what the instructor rate is for that hotel.

    Travel expenses per GSA standards (

    • Airfare
    • Rental car
    • Privately owned vehicle (POV) if used
    • Per diem
    • Tolls, taxis, etc.
    Please use the ATI expense form. Per diem (~$70)

  • *airfare estimates are made for flights departing from the closest major airport to the instructor's home town to the destination city. We use a mid-range fare derived from online travel services (e.g. Expedia, Travelocity, etc.).

Your Short Course Instructor Agreement (contract), which lists the exact payment terms for the course, will arrive 4-6 weeks following final confirmation of your course at an ATI event. Your honorarium and expense reimbursement will be mailed from ATI headquarters approximately 1 week after we have received your expense report and supporting documents. It is important that you return your signed agreement form along with the completed reimbursement form and copies of receipts. ATI cannot pay you without a signed instructor agreement.

If you are a first-time instructor for ATI, you will also need to submit an IRS W-9 form before we can issue payment. More information, including PDF downloads of the necessary forms, is available at the Tax Information & Reporting Income page.

Make Your Own Reservations

Course instructors are requested to make their own reservations for both airfare and lodging. ATI cannot guarantee accommodations for you but we generally have arrangements with the hotel or facility holding your course and include this information with your logistics information. If you are an AAA and/or AARP member, please mention it when making your reservations.
