IAMSP is committed to assisting our memberships as they work to improve their level of services and professionalism. This support is a key element of the Association’s efforts and the eLearning effort makes us unique within the community in that IAMSP is the sole organization that offers that opportunity to its membership as part of its membership fees (Full and Associate).
The eLearning effort is broken down into five major elements. They are the following:
For those seeking to pursue this opportunity, you will find the pages for each specific course listed as subpages of this page on the menu bar to the right. On this page, you will find the following:
- The worksheet that describes the course, its origins, its maintenance and its weight in terms of continuing education;
- A brief description of the module;
- The link to the presentation (PowerPoint show, Podcast or other media); and
- Link to the Quiz.
The quiz results are captured automatically by the website, meaning that there is little opportunity for inappropriate human intervention in terms of the results.
You will also find that certain codes are used to describe courses. While these may be somewhat arcane in the beginning, they follow a systematic approach that clearly identifies where they fit into the overall hierarchy. These include the following:
These are consistent with the various structures that are used within the Vetting of Training and similar documentation.
We look forward to the challenges and the rewards of rolling out this truly unique capacity into our membership. We look forward to being able to work collaboratively with others in the industry space in developing these kinds of tools. We will also be examining ways that corporations can gain limited access to the material in such a way that they can incorporate this training into their own internal training regimes. We expect to have a number of alternatives ready for this in the future.
