The AIMSS™ authoring tool set training course will help you become proficient in developing interactive electronic technical manuals (IETMs). It helps writers move from the linear, or page-by-page, view of information to a hierarchical arrangement. The basic 40-hour course comprises half lecture and half laboratory exercises, and can be taught at your facility and tailored to meet your needs.

The course covers:

  • Introduction to IETMs
  • Installation
  • Menu structure
  • Editors
  • Features
  • IETM development project
  • Achievement test
  • Practical test

The AIMSS authoring tool set training course is experiential, so class size is limited to ten students. Students should have a working knowledge of personal computers and be familiar with the Windows® computer environment.

For classes taught at your facility, our instructor will need a classroom with tables, chairs, a whiteboard with markers, and an overhead projector. We recommend that a personal computer be provided for every student; however, two students per personal computer is acceptable.
