AIIM Announces 2 New Training Programs for BPM and Findability
AIIM - The Enterprise Content Management Association announces the expansion of its certificate training program to include two new programs for Business Process Management (BPM) and Information Organization & Access (IOA). These new programs will provide organizations with the skills and knowledge to improve their business processes and optimize enterprise search and findability. Online courses will be available starting September 10 by going to www.aiim.org/training.
"The huge success of our first two certificate programs — on Electronic Records Management and Enterprise Content Management — led us to look at related certificate programs that would help end-users make smart information management decisions," notes AIIM President John Mancini. "Over 4,200 course attendees have been through our programs in the first 18 months of operation, making AIIM the leading provider of end-user education on records management and document management in the world."
Each AIIM Certificate Training Program consists of three designation levels (Practitioner, Specialist and Master level) across four programs (Enterprise Content Management (ECM), Electronic Records Management (ERM), Business Process Management (BPM) and Information Organization & Access (IOA)). "People enroll in the AIIM courses to get a good understanding of technologies, methodologies and global best practices for managing information and business processes, but also to get the highly respected AIIM Practitioner, Specialist and Master designations," states Atle Skjekkeland, Vice President of AIIM.
The Business Process Management (BPM) program offers strategic and practical knowledge for building a business case, process/information governance, business analysis, BPM architecture and technologies, collaboration, and the role of enterprise content management (ECM) in business process management. Information about the BPM program is available at http://www.aiim.org/education/BPM-program.asp.
The Information Organization & Access (IOA) program covers content audits and inventories, search tools and techniques, taxonomies, metadata, document and content modeling, the user experience of information access, information organization standards, and findability. Information about the IOA program is available at http://www.aiim.org/education/IOA-program.asp.
The two new programs were developed by CMS Watch in conjunction with AIIM's Education Advisory Group which includes such organizations as Accenture, BearingPoint, Fujitsu, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Royal Mail, The National Archives of the United Kingdom, US Department of Treasury, and Virgin Media.
