Become a Practitioner or Specialist after taking the online exams. Become a Master after taking an online exam and successfully passing a case study exercise. The Practitioner courses will help you to answer the question, "What is?", Specialist courses cover "How to Implement", and Master courses cover "Putting It All Together". Courses are offered both online and in a classroom setting. For online courses, take courses in your time at your own pace. You will have unlimited access to the online courses and handouts for 6 months. For classroom courses, attend a course and you will also have access to online materials for 6 months.
How do the online programs work?
Each online program is broken into modules. Each online module is approximately 40-60 minutes in length and combines audio and PowerPoint, delivered via your Web browser. You may start, pause or stop the module at any time to review materials at your own pace. You can also view a module multiple times to ensure mastery of content. Downloadable handout materials and additional links and resources accompany each course. At the end of each module there is a small exam (15-20 questions) covering the content presented. All questions are covered within the course material.
Students have unlimited access to the online courses and handouts for 6 months, but a maximum of 3 attempts to pass the online exam, which is accessible from the AIIM website. You need 70% correct answers to pass the exam. Once you have successfully passed all the exams for the program, you will receive a Certificate of Completion and you will be awarded the designation of "Practitioner" or "Specialist". You can use the associated logo and title on your business card, email signature, web page, etc.
How are the classroom classes structured?
The Practitioner class is a 2-day class and the Master class is a 4-day class. The Master class covers both the Practitioner and the Specialist. After the class (during your own time) students take an online exam which has approximately 65 questions. You need 70% correct answers to pass the exam and you have 3 attempts. Students have 90 minutes to answer the exam, but students with disabilities or from non-English speaking countries will be given an additional 30 minutes. For the Master class, students also must submit a case study exercise within 3 months after the class. The exercise is given in class and students must complete the exercise. Upon successfully passing the exam and receiving a passing grade on the case study exercise students will become a Master.
