Refresher Core Trainings
The refresher core trainings will provide a general overview of basic functionality, including navigation, census, and state reporting within the AIM system (a condensed version of the original Montana Edition trainings). These trainings are recommended for new AIM users.
The Montana Edition value-added trainings will give specific instructions about using the additional tools in the system (that are not required for state reporting). Topics for these trainings include calendar administration, scheduling, ad hoc reporting, behavior, enrollment, grading, creating custom tabs, standards setup, instruction reports, attendance, immunizations, photo import/export, programs, records transfer, portal, student locator, staff tracking, and user notices.
The live online WebEx trainings (refresher core and value-added trainings) will begin August 31st and run through October. The self-paced pre-recorded WebEx sessions will be available after August 31st, and will be accessible throughout the year. Courses are offered at multiple times, and there is no commitment to take additional courses. Sign up for only those you want. Registration begins August 25th. If courses fill up, additional live sessions may be added.
