AIM Molders’ Series Now Accredited

The American Injection Molding Institute (AIM), Erie, Pennsylvania, has announced it is home to the first and only four programs in the injection molding industry to earn ANAB Accreditation: Molding 1, Molding 2, Molding 3, and the Plastics Technology and Engineering (PTE) Certificate Program. Now, everyone who successfully completes a Molders’ Series course at AIM will earn an internationally recognized ANAB-Accredited certificate.

AIM achieving and maintaining this accreditation requires a substantial commitment to meet the strict ANSI/ASTM E2659 standards. The Institute has made this commitment because accreditation is an essential part of providing high-value education and training, as well as an exceptional student experience. In fact, more than 80% of people the Institute surveyed said they place a higher value on educational providers that have a formal third-party accreditation.

To comply with these standards, AIM is required to define specific learning objectives that are traceable back to course content and exam questions. AIM also employs psychometrics and statistical analysis to develop passing scores for each exam. In addition, every exam question and skills assessment test are tracked and scrutinized for fairness and effectiveness to ensure a quality evaluation of the student’s knowledge and skills.
