AICC Certifies Oracle’s  
PeopleSoft Enterprise Learning Management 9.0

New test affirms Oracle’s longstanding commitment to open standards and software interoperability

Sugar City, Idaho USA – – The announced today that Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Learning Management (ELM 9.0) has been formally certified as compliant with the AICC’s Web-Based Computer Managed Instruction Systems (CMI) Guideline (AGR-010). This guideline allows AICC-conforming web-based learning content and courseware to interoperate with AICC-conforming LMS systems. AICC Guidelines are used across multiple industries in addition to aviation training.

ELM 9.0 was certified last week when an independent testing lab determined its compliance for CMI guidelines. ELM 9.0 also complies with the latest proposed specifications of the Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM), the other major standard ensuring that enterprise software is able to effectively and meaningfully interoperate with e-Learning content.

Oracle is an active AICC member and a leader in the learning industry’s effort to standardize communication between e-Learning content and enterprise software applications.

“PeopleSoft Enterprise Learning Management 9.0 is a feature-rich release that directly responds to customer requests for increased usability and automation," said Oracle Vice President HCM Strategy Gretchen Alarcon. "With this new version, we are furthering the depth of our talent management offering and giving customers enhanced tools to cultivate a skilled and certified workforce. This certification of ELM 9.0 affirms our commitment to the use of global standards for learning.”

“ELM 9.0’s AICC certification is good news for any industry that has to deliver training online,” said William A. McDonald, AICC CMI Subcommittee chair and Learning Technology Architect at Alteon (Boeing’s aviation training company). “This clearly demonstrates Oracle’s continued commitment to providing courseware interoperability for its customers and partners.”

The AICC is an international association of technology-based training professionals. While its mission is to create open standards for computer-based training in the aviation industry, AICC guidelines are being used by software vendors across a variety of industries, and are paving the way for the global standardization of learning technologies.

Standards such as those set by the AICC and SCORM allow courseware and learning management systems to convey information and be integrated. They also give consumers a level of confidence that the content and the learning management system will work together to provide not just learning material, but data that can be used to meet an organization’s strategic goals.

About the AICC: The AICC's mission is to provide and promote information, guidelines and standards that result in the effective implementation of CBT and WBT. The AICC has long been an advocate of interoperable learning technology. More information is available at the organization’s Web site at
