Fulcrum Labs and Aviation Institute of Maintenance Win a Record Five Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management Excellence Awards

​​Fulcrum Labs, the industry leader in AI-powered adaptive learning technology, analytics and training outcomes, and the Aviation Institute of Maintenance (AIM), one of the nation’s premier aviation mechanic training programs, have been awarded five new honors from the Brandon Hall Group in its prestigious 2019 Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence Awards. This year’s HCM wins include:

  • Gold - Best Advance in Learning Technology Implementation
  • Gold - Best Use of a Blended Learning Program
  • Silver - Best Advance in Competencies & Skills Development
  • Silver - Best Advance in Creating a Learning Strategy
  • Bronze - Best Advance In Machine Learning and AI

These new awards mark a record number of Brandon Hall Group wins for the partners, bringing their combined total to 14 over the past three years. 

Brandon Hall Group’s 2019 HCM Excellence Awards recognized Fulcrum Labs and AIM for their continued work on AIM’s FAA mechanic certification preparation program. The program leverages Fulcrum’s AI-powered, Adaptive 3.0 learning platform to help AIM prepare graduates at its 12 campuses nationwide to sit for and pass critical FAA certification exams. 

First implemented in 2017, the program has increased AIM graduates, encouraged 25 percent higher exam participation and improved certification pass rates by more than 46 percent. 

Building on its initial success, the two companies have continually worked to refine the program – delving deeply into learner and content data to determine opportunities for program improvement and increased efficacy. This analysis and its resulting insights have changed AIM’s FAA preparation strategy: encouraging the company to expand the availability of Fulcrum’s technology throughout its program coursework, dramatically improving the efficacy of the course content, and giving learners new tools to self-remediate their knowledge gaps and build confidence with a personalized Pathway to Mastery. 

“The success of our partnership with Fulcrum Labs has empowered us to set new, exciting goals for our company,” said Joel English, Vice President at AIM. “Armed with this technology, we’re committed to producing 20 percent – or one in every five – of all FAA-certified aviation mechanics for the industry by 2021.”

AIM also hopes to increase pass rates by an additional 25 percent by 2021, moving the aviation industry toward unprecedented certification rates and filling a persistent and critical skill gap that has plagued the industry for years.

A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives evaluated award entries based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.

“The HCM Excellence Awards recognize programs that measurably benefit organizations,” said Mike Cooke, Brandon Hall Group CEO. “Many human capital management departments are unable to confirm that their initiatives help the business’s bottom line. Because we focus on measurable benefits, our awards program is universally recognized and highly prestigious.”

Excellence Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group’s HCM Excellence Conference, Feb. 4-6, 2020, at the Hilton West Palm Beach, Florida. For more information about these awards, visit: http://www.brandonhall.com/excellenceawards/past-winners.php.
