The Australian Institute of Management (AIM) Victoria's members will have access to IT training from Interim Technology, following a strategic alliance between the two companies.
AIM Victoria is also planning to include specific Interim courses as units in its course directory in 2001.
The alliance is a response to demand for IT training among AIM members, according to Bernard Cronin, AIM's executive director. "We have thousand of members who, like the rest of the business community, have to keep up with new technology and software," said Cronin.
"I don't have a conversation these days which does not include e-commerce, new technology and the internet. Consequently, there needs to be the ability of members to access these information and training to keep up to date."
Cronin also said that the alliance was integral in providing its members with the resources they need as managers. "AIM is committed to facilitating management and leadership excellence. By teaming with Interim Technology, which for over 30 years has had an outstanding reputation as a provider of high-quality training, we can ensure our members and clients are offered the best resources available to excel as managers."
Depending on the success of the alliance in Victoria, Interim's training courses may be made available to AIM's 35,000 members throughout Australia. AIM and Interim are also exploring the possibility of introducing discounts or membership prices to AIM doing Interim courses.
