AHAIN is pleased to announce we are adding web based, online training!

The “e” of e-learning refers to the use of your computer and the internet.

The “learning” component indicates the cognitive, affective, or behavioral learning objectives.


  • Minimizes costs
  • Minimizes down time
  • Appeals to contemporary learners


To participate in an AHAIN E-Learning Webinar, you simply need a computer, a Web browser, and your telephone or headphones. During AHAIN E-Learning, our instructor will share her desktop, in real time, so students can watch the necessary steps to perform the task.

AHAIN uses GoToMeeting for AHAIN E-Learning

“GoToMeeting broadcasts the desktop view of a host computer to a group of students connected to the host through the Internet. Transmissions are protected with high-security encryption and optional passwords. By combining a web-hosted subscription service with software installed on the host computer, transmissions can be passed through highly restrictive firewalls.”


Participation will be limited to 20 so students can ask questions and interact throughout the training. For the best experience, students need speakers and a microphone on your computer to allow full participation. However, a student can type questions on their screen if a microphone is not available.

This will require use of a calculator. Participants will be given a short time to work out each situation and we will go through them together. This hands-on class will be good practice for any site staff that needs to determine if household’s income qualify. Plenty of time will be allowed for discussion and questions.
