Holly Group announced the public launch of the first accredited classroom-based preparatory course for the Certified Information Professional training program from AIIM International. Designed with group education in mind, it fosters detailed, facilitated discussions in students' own contexts and thereby not only furthers the ability to earn the certification, but returns immediate organizational benefit as well. As such, it goes well beyond the online training videos that Holly Group produced for AIIM when the program was originated.
"AIIM's highlighting of the information professional as a critical person within today's organizations is 100% compatible with the view we have always taken as analysts, consultants, and instructors," Holly Group principal Steve Weissman said. "So it was as much of a no-brainer as it was an honor to create the videos when AIIM asked us to, and to now turn them into an interactive live experience."
Weissman has been teaching AIIM's highly-regarded ECM and BPM certificate courses for several years, and sees the CIP as a well-crafted backdrop against which to view these more focused programs. "Business and technology managers have to be cognizant of each other's requirements and concerns if their information initiatives are to fully succeed," he said. "The CIP does a great job of casting a much-needed net over all of today's big issues."
AIIM's CIP training program has been adopted by information professionals in more than 12 countries and is gaining recognition as the designation to earn to demonstrate mastery of the multiple domains knowledge needed to succeed in the current business environment.
