Sugar City, Idaho: The announced today that GeoMetrix Data Systems Inc. has obtained AICC Certification for its learning management system, Training Partner. After successful testing by an AICC independent test lab, Training Partner Online is now certified compliant to AGR-010 (Web-based CMI Guidelines). This Web-based CMI Certification covers learning management systems that manage and launch AU’s (Assignable Units) and track student progress.

GeoMetrix designed Training Partner Online as an add-on to the standard Training Partner learning management system to allow self-service and instructor access from a standard Web browser anywhere in the world. Enhancing the already comprehensive learning management system, TP2000 Online offers advanced features such as online discussion forums, skills, evaluations and student self-registration. Scaling from thousands to hundreds of thousands of users, Training Partner Online manages the training requirements of a diverse range of businesses and applications.

"This marks a major milestone for the AICC as GeoMetrix is the first Canadian vendor to achieve certification," said William A. McDonald, Learning Technology Architect for FlightSafetyBoeing and Chair of the AICC’s Independent Test Lab Committee. "I believe that other companies in Canada's learning technology industry will follow GeoMetrix's lead."

GeoMetrix is strongly committed to the AICC standards and fully supports the AICC, which certifies training products that comply with AICC Guidelines and Recommendations (AGR's) through its independent test labs. "By conforming to AICC standards, GeoMetrix provides a greater level of flexibility for clients and content vendors. Learners are allowed to choose their own paths to complete courseware," stated Brett Watters, Director of Research and Development for GeoMetrix. AICC courseware launching and tracking is a built-in part of the CBT launching and tracking module of Training Partner Online.

AICC guidelines are the most widely accepted standards for the launching and tracking of computer-based courseware and are supported by numerous content providers both large and small. AICC conformance empowers learners to control the speed of their own learning through reviewing course material independently on an ad-hoc basis. Self-paced learning easily utilizes custom-created or off-the-shelf content from any AICC web-based source. Supervisors may review learner performance through the various units.
