It builds on the previous training and there will be an expectation that the participants already have a core body of knowledge from that training and will ideally have been using the AIM2 model in practice. This course is not available for practitioners who have no previous training in AIM2, nor for anyone whose training is more than 2 years old. For those practitioners we recommend attending our new AIM 3 Course.

If successful, the participants will then be certified as competent and approved by AIM to use the AIM 3 model. Post course, quality assurance on how AIM 3 is used in practice should be provided through the practitioner’s line management.
