These additional educational programs have a tight focus and are offered in a standalone format that enhances the training provided in our business series of AIIM Certificate programs. We are pleased to be partnering with CMS Watch, who shares the same level of commitment to education as AIIM, in developing and delivering this new series to our community and the business world at large.
Silver Spring, MD (Vocus) January 22, 2009

AIIM Essentials are non-certificate, online programs that include courses on Web Content Management (WCM), SharePoint, Digital Asset Management (DAM), and eDiscovery.
"AIIM Essentials is designed to provide business and government end-users with an unbiased focus on specific topics relevant to today's changing technological and business landscapes," states AIIM Director Bob Larrivee. "AIIM's technology series of educational programs delivers a vendor-neutral and independent perspective on technology tools and what to look for when evaluating solutions, while our business series of certificate programs addresses the many challenges of governance and management when applying these technologies to a business problem."

"The creation of AIIM Essentials is in direct response to the many student and AIIM membership requests worldwide," states Mr. Larrivee. "These additional educational programs have a tight focus and are offered in a standalone format that enhances the training provided in our business series of AIIM Certificate programs. We are pleased to be partnering with CMS Watch, who shares the same level of commitment to education as AIIM, in developing and delivering this new series to our community and the business world at large."
CMS Watch Principal Theresa Regli adds, "Level-setting knowledge about a particular technology or methodology is so crucial to reducing risk and increasing the potential for success in all areas of enterprise content management (ECM). The Essentials courses were created to do just that: provide a vendor-independent, solid common ground of knowledge in the areas of WCM, DAM, eDiscovery, and SharePoint. The courses are frank about what these technologies can and can't do; what situations they're most appropriate for; and what the best practice methodologies are." She continues, "Over the years, AIIM has built an unmatched education program that puts ECM practitioners on a common footing. After working with AIIM to develop the Certificate programs for Information Organization & Access (IOA) and Business Process Management (BPM), we are thrilled to partner on this new series of courses."
