Travel

There are many great hotels in the Erie area. Please visit https://aim.institute/travel-to-aim/ for our full list of recommendations on where to stay.

We would recommend flying into Erie International Airport (ERI) as it is located about 3 miles from our headquarters. We understand there may be limited flights to Erie. If that is the case, we are of almost equal distance from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Buffalo Niagara Airport (BUF), and Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT). For more information visit our travel page at https://aim.institute/travel-to-aim/.

Enrollment Evaluations

We ask our students to take an Enrollment Evaluation prior to registering as way to ensure a student is placed in the proper course level based on their knowledge, skills, and career objectives. This allows us to properly guide them in their education with AIM giving them the most value.

Class Progression

No! If you already passed Molding 1 or 2, there is no need to complete an Enrollment Evaluation for the next program.
