"The Academy is an online training portal that can be accessed from your computer or laptop... from any location you choose!"
What is the AIQS Academy?
The AIQS Academy is an on demand, online training portal available for all professionals. This platform provides further CPD options to AIQS Members or Non-Members and can be accessed from a location of your choice.
During the course of 2016, the AIQS Academy will roll out up to 100 topics. Each topic involves readings, followed by an assessment to ensure participants meet the required level of competency. Each topic takes approximately two hours, but completion can be at your own pace and work around your busy schedule.
The topics available have been individually reviewed and assessed to the highest standard expected by the AIQS for continuing professional development. The AIQS Education Committee will regularly review and update the offerings of the AIQS Academy, to ensure wide ranging and relevant topics.
The Academy can help you identify knowledge gaps, learn new or upgrade existing skills as well as provide upskilling opportunities for your project team.
