AIIM ECM Master and ERM Master Classes Now Available Online

AIIM has offered ECM and ERM training since 1996. We've always offered students two ways to attend our Practitioner and Specialist courses: our instructor-led courses, and self-paced online courses. But the Master Class, with its in-class case study exercise and home case study assignment, has only been available as an instructor-led format.

Until now. I am very pleased to announce that we have put the ECM Master Class and ERM Master Class online. The Master Classes include 100% of the instructor-led content: The ECM/ERM Specialist, the Implementation, and the ECM/ERM Master Case Study. The Master Case Study portion consists of 5 new modules:

  • The case study assignment background - GreenPowerOps for ECM, AIIMBank for ERM.
  • 3 individual (optional) modules that provide students a chance to practice. Each module includes some exercises and a sample answer for each exercise. 
  • The home case study module. This includes the assignments the student will choose from, as well as detailed information on how the home case study assignments are graded. As noted in the online materials, students should select ONE assignment and complete all the tasks on that assignment. 

Students who sign up for either Master Class will have access to the materials, the online exam, the in-class Case Study, and the at-home Case Study for six months.

The online Master Classes are a great solution for students with no travel budget or who cannot get approval to take the time off (including travel time). It's also great for students who do not live near one of our training locations (U.S., Toronto, London, Amsterdam) or training partners, or for whom our instructor-led course schedule just doesn't work. The price for the self-paced online ECM and ERM Master Classes has been set at USD $1,785.

And if you've already completed one or more of the Practitioner or Specialist components, and want to complete the Master Class, you now have an avenue to do this in a way that works with your schedule and recognizes your prior work. This allows you to upgrade your current designation to the ECM or ERM Master.

More importantly in my opinion, prior students who register for the ECM or ERM Master Class get ALL of the Master Class training materials. So if you took the ERM Practitioner in my first class in February 2006, you get access to all of the most current content as well as the Master Class case study content. If you are interested in this, send a note to training@aiim.org and, once we verify your previous course status, we will give you a discount code that drops the price to $895.

The ECM Master Online and ERM Master Online are available for registration immediately. Feel free to reach out to me at jwilkins@aiim.org if I can provide any additional information.
