Welcome to AQEM e-Learning
AQEM e-Learning is unique in that it provides
very focused and “real world” application-oriented
information and training in technical and specialty subject areas
while using state of the art instructional design to assure a
valuable and enjoyable learning experience. It provides participants
with the management processes, technical expertise, and information
and training they need to add to their personal knowledge and
Importantly, processes and recommendations provided
in AQEM e-Learning programs can be immediately applied in the
work place. AQEM e-Learning
programs can help organizations and individuals reduce costs
and improve performance, quality and efficiency.
Another unique feature of the AQEM e-Learning experience is the
Forum. Subscribers to an AQEM e-Learning program may use the
AQEM e-Learning Forum to discuss a specific topic with other
subscribers. This could include asking how someone may have
solved a management, process or technical problem similar to
one that you have experienced, or to ask subscribers questions
about other AQEM e-Learning programs that might be of interest
CONTINUITY: TOPICS; SERIES; SPECIFIC SUBJECTS
AQEM e-Learning Program Topics are grouped by overall area of
interests, such as Business Management, Environmental Management,
Quality Management, etc. Each topic area has one or more series.
Each series has programs (courses) that are focused on a specific
subject and are designed to help those persons who most need
assistance with that subject.
For example, under the Environmental
Management topic and the Industrial Wastewater Treatment series,
Guide” course provides managers and supervisors information
on process improvements, on the skills that operational personnel
need, and on the use of specific management tools.
in the same series, however, such as the “Metals
Precipitation Processes” and the “Oil-Water Separation
Processes” courses, are designed primarily for operational
personnel or supervisory personnel who need to know the processes,
techniques and details for cost-effectively treating the wastewater
at these types of facilities. They are also for those personnel
who may need continuing education in the area of wastewater treatment,
and for municipal personnel or others who have an interest in
understanding Industrial Wastewater Treatment processes and operations.
QUALITY ASSURANCE: TOPIC DEVELOPMENT; INSTRUCTIONAL
DESIGN; PEER REVIEW
Each AQEM e-Learning course belongs to a common theme of courses.
Each is developed by a subject matter expert (or a team of experts)
who has significant “hands on” experience in that
specific subject area. The contents of a course are then reviewed
by instructional design professionals who enhance the structure
of the material, the graphics and visualizations, and the Q & A
and exercises within the training material to optimize participant
retention and to assure an enjoyable and positive learning experience.
The course material is then developed into a web-enabled program
for future delivery over the Internet.
Once this is complete,
a peer review of the course is undertaken. Each reviewer provides
comments and suggestions regarding the
contents, material accuracy, sequence, graphics, Q&A, Internet
presentation, and the overall application of the processes and
recommendations that are provided within the course.
edits and enhancements are completed after the peer review.
The course is then added to the AQEM portfolio of courses.
An enterprise-wide corporate program is available for organizations
with personnel in multiple locations who need to subscribe
to AQEM e-Learning programs. The greater the number of personnel
or members subscribing to a specific course the less the cost
is per person.
Additionally, if your company has a common process
at several locations, (e.g., a company-wide Best Practice,
new EMS or QMS),
then the enterprise-wide corporate program would allow all
appropriate personnel to take the same exact training within
the same timeframe.
The skill level of the affected workforce could be brought
to a higher level of performance in a very short period of time.
an alternative, any AQEM e-Learning program can be placed on
a company Intranet and customized for use for that specific
On-site or off-site technical assistance and
instructor-led training courses and seminars are also available
