Hosted by Auburn University at Montgomery
The GIW Portal is hosted by Auburn University at Montgomery and content will be added as needed to help the industry and educators. Live training and testing may be scheduled during the year, but at this time is limited to the Appalachian Region of Alabama. Partnering sponsors, willing to supplement training costs, may schedule the training anywhere outside of Alabama's ARC Region.
Accessible for study anywhere, anytime
The GIW Portal and the library of video content, links, and reproducible content will be accessible for study anytime. Live classes and "virtual office hour schedules" are being developed at this time and will be listed on the "Classes and Training" page.
Backed by many professionals, associations, faculties, and government entities
The GIW Portal has been created and will be sustained by a large group of supporters, listed on the "Sponsors and Partners" page. If you want to attend live classes, schedule a class in your area, or would like to help support the GIW efforts, please contact: GIW Educational Director, Fred Kapp: firstname.lastname@example.org or 205-862-2588.
