AIMS International has launched its new e-leaning platform, AIMS connectED, which can now be accessed on the new AIMS International website, http://www.aimsintl.org/
AIMS connectED delivers a unique educational opportunity through which learners are able to experience more than 30 of the actual courses that were offered at the 2020 AIMS International Safety Seminar in Galveston, Texas, in January. The courses were hand-picked by the AIMS Curriculum Committee to showcase top-rated amusement industry leaders presenting material on a wide variety of operations, maintenance and ride inspection topics.
When asked for comment, AIMS Executive Director Mary Jane Brewer said, “AIMS is proud and honored to be able to assist amusement industry professionals in earning the continuing education units necessary to renew their AIMS certifications from the comfort of their own home or office.”
All AIMS International courses are designed to adhere to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard for continuing education through assistance from their education partner, Ellis and Associates (E&A), which is accredited by the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET). AIMS has partnered with E&A to build a state-of-the-art learning management system (LMS) through which the courses are delivered.
“The educational content made available through AIMS connectED delivers superior curriculum suitable for professional development, continuing education and career enhancement,” said Tony Claassen of Silver Dollar City, serving as AIMS Board President. “It presents a terrific opportunity for amusement industry professionals to enhance their education right now.”
In the coming months, AIMS International will be adding more content to its already extensive library, in a variety of formats, through the new AIMS connectED LMS. Custom content will also be available to private organizations and associations with the option for delivery in multiple languages.
