AICC Certifies Plateau 5.8 Learning Management System : Fourth AICC Certification Validates Plateau's Longstanding Commitment to Open Standards and Software Interoperability

Share Article

The Aviation Industry CBT Committee (AICC) announced today that Plateau 5.8 Learning Management System (LMS) has been formally certified as compliant with the AICC's Web-Based Computer Managed Instruction Systems (CMI) Guideline (AGR-010). This guideline ensures that AICC-conforming Web-based learning content and courseware interoperates with AICC-conforming LMS systems.

This most recent certification of Plateau 5.8 LMS reinforces our commitment to creating a global standard for learning technology not only for our major aviation customers, but the entire industry.

Plateau LMS was originally certified by the AICC in June 2001, and again in 2003 and 2005. It was recertified last month when an independent testing lab validated the compliance of Plateau 5.8 with CMI guidelines. In addition to AICC, Plateau also complies with Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM), the other major standard for ensuring interoperability between enterprise software and e-Learning content.

"With its fourth AICC certification, Plateau continues to demonstrate that it is an industry leader with a long-term commitment to interoperability," said William A. McDonald, AICC CMI Subcommittee chair and Learning Technology Architect at Alteon, Boeing's aviation training company.

For nearly a decade, Plateau Systems has been an active AICC member and a leader in the learning industry's effort to standardize communication between e-Learning content and enterprise software applications. Plateau's Chief Technology Officer, Ed Cohen, has served as the chair of the AICC Training Infrastructure Subcommittee since 2004. As a subcommittee chair, Cohen has substantial input within the AICC's Executive subcommittee, which guides the organization's strategic direction and administration.

"We have worked collaboratively and consistently with the AICC and other leading standards bodies for the past several years to promote open standards that facilitate software interoperability in the e-Learning industry," Cohen said. "This most recent certification of Plateau 5.8 LMS reinforces our commitment to creating a global standard for learning technology not only for our major aviation customers, but the entire industry."

The AICC is an international association of technology-based training professionals. While its mission is to create open standards for computer-based training in the aviation industry, AICC guidelines are being used by software vendors across a variety of industries, and are paving the way for the global standardization of learning technologies.

Standards such as those set by the AICC and SCORM allow courseware and learning management systems to seamlessly convey and exchange information. They also ensure that the content and the learning management system will work together to provide not just learning material, but data that can be used to meet an organization's strategic goals.

About the AICC: The AICC's mission is to provide and promote information, guidelines and standards that result in the effective creation and implementation of CBT and WBT. The AICC has long been an advocate of interoperable learning technology. More information is available at the organization's Web site at
