Online Teacher Training is only available for teachers who are enrolled in one of our Foundations Training Sessions. AIM Online Teacher Training is ‘self-paced’, allowing teachers to work independently through 11 modules covering all aspects of the AIM program. This training includes on-demand live support, videos of AIM workshops and AIM teacher forum.
The highest level of training, the AIM Teacher Certification is an online study course completed over the course of a year’s teaching. Becoming a Certified AIM Teacher involves working through the modules in the AIM Online Teacher Training site with the guidance of a mentor who evaluates and helps develop the AIM teacher’s skills.
