AIA Launches On-Demand Training Portal for Owners

AIA University provides distributors with virtual training and support at any time from any device.

Appleton, Wis. (July 15, 2020) – AIA Corporation (AIA) today announced the introduction of AIA University, an on-demand, cloud-based training portal that distributors can access from any internet-enabled device. The robust keyword search feature quickly connects users with relevant video tutorials and reference materials on more than 28 topics. Content includes tutorials for the Experience AIA platform, Google G Suite, Workplace by Facebook and Company Stores, as well as recordings of Town Hall meetings and access to MVP Central, a portal for supplier information.

“AIA understands Owners often don’t work a traditional 9-to-5 schedule––with AIA University, they can access the information and support they need wherever, whenever,” said Carrie Howle, MAS, manager of training and onboarding at AIA. “Owners also can use the portal to augment their own staff training programs by assigning training modules to team members as needed. It’s one more way AIA helps Owners work smarter.”

AIA University offers more than 75 courses and is continuously updated with new training curriculums, as well as timely resources related to Covid-19, such as personal protective equipment (PPE) supplier updates. As such, Owners have immediate access to this information, without the hassle of storing it on their own servers or cloud services. In addition, AIA monitors what content is most often searched and viewed, using this data to inform the development of future curriculum.

AIA University joins AIA’s portfolio of in-person and online tools aimed at helping Owners collaborate, improve productivity and streamline their businesses. This includes personalized sales and business coaching with a dedicated success manager, as well as online resources such as Workplace by Facebook, Google G Suite and Experience AIA, the company’s proprietary business technology platform.
