The AIM Institute’s Plastics Professional Continuing Education & Training Series provides employees with the knowledge and skills necessary to help increase efficiency and profitability.

What makes The AIM Institute courses different from other training courses?

  • Focus on education versus training
  • Not more of the ‘same old process training’
  • Emphasize the in-depth relationships between plastic flow, mold & part design, processing, & part quality
  • Teach students how to implement state-of-the-art design & diagnostic strategies
  • Teach students how to engineer solutions based on science, not habits
  • Get students to think through complex questions & problems by considering all variables
  • Encourage students to question each procedure or habit with: why do they do it & how can it be done better
