AIM prepares you to take an interpreter certification test. A diagnostic analysis of your work, some feedback, and a few practice sessions in a lab-type setting help you feel confident in the test-taking environment. From a sample of your work, AIM gives you an analysis of your skill level. Feedback tells you if you are ready to take the chosen test. (For example, if you have a Missouri Interpreting Certification System (MICS) Intermediate level 3, AIM gives feedback on the readiness for the Level 4-5 test.) If you are ready then AIM puts you in a simulated test environment to practice taking a test and to get comfortable with the format of the test environment. If you are not ready, then AIM creates a prescription for you to follow to prepare.
