AIM Organised Training Courses

The AIM Project organises and hosts AIM training courses throughout the year, where places on the courses are sold individually. This is to facilitate individuals or small teams who wish to do AIM training, but it is not economically viable for them to commission a training course Twice a year the AIM organised training takes place over one week, offering several of our courses over the period of that week, making it more economical on travel and accommodation costs for individuals and small teams. They are held at different places in the UK, primarily London, Bristol and Manchester The AIM organised training also allows us to put on additional courses when needed to address the demand for some of our most popular courses. These we try and locate geographically close to the areas of demand

We advertise our AIM organised courses on our news and events section of our website, so keep an eye on that for new courses coming through. Details of the courses can also be found below Spaces are available to book on our next AIM Organised Training Courses, please have a look at the course details and complete the booking form at the bottom of this page. If the course has sold out, please complete the booking form to register your interest in future courses
