What is Patreon?

Patreon is a site through which creators offer content on a per creation basis or via a monthly charge. ATI has opted for the monthly charge plan. For one low monthly charge, you can access ATI training on a variety of topics!

How does it work?

You can become a “Patron” of creators on Patreon. When you become a Patron, you have access to tiers of content based on how much you’d like to contribute to the creator each month or on a per-creation basis.

The tiers are “Reward” levels. You choose which Reward level you’d like to access and can cancel your patronage at any time.

Patreon bills the first of each month. If you want to cancel your patronage, you must do so before the first of the month.

What are the ATI Rewards and Monthly cost?

ATI has 9 tiers of rewards for supporting us on Patreon.
