The AICC (Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee) is a learning standard that assures coursework is designed, developed, and delivered to learners across a wide range of platforms.

It was launched in 1993 as a CD-ROM software. Importantly, it was the precursor to SCORM and needed a series of steps before material based on the standard could be prepared to operate on LMS.

Q: What is AICC?
A: AICC stands for Aviation Industry Computer-Based Training Committee. It is an international association that consists of professionals in the aviation industry who are involved in technology-based training.

Q: What is the purpose of AICC?
A: AICC’s main objective is to promote and establish technology-based training standards and guidelines in the aviation industry. This includes the development of common specifications for computer-based training delivery and tracking systems to ensure that the training programs are of high quality and meet the industry’s requirements.

Q: What are some benefits of using AICC standards?
A: The adoption of AICC standards results in several benefits, such as enhanced consistency and reliability of training delivery, improved tracking and reporting of learner progress and achievement, and increased interoperability between different learning management systems. It also allows for cost-effective training solutions and facilitates the exchange of training materials between different organizations.

Q: How does AICC differ from other e-learning standards?
A: ICC is unique in its focus on technology-based training in the aviation industry, while other e-learning standards such as SCORM are more broadly applicable to a range of industries and learning contexts. AICC standards also cover specific requirements for aviation-related training, such as the tracking of flight simulator hours and the integration of training records with airline personnel systems.
