AIMS Education History
AIMS Education first opened its doors in 2004 in South Plainfield, NJ. The school was founded by a group of individuals, including healthcare professionals, who saw the need for better allied health training in New Jersey. After starting off in a small office building in South Plainfield, AIMS moved to its main campus in Piscataway. The school has since grown into one of the premier allied health institutions in New Jersey.
In 2007, AIMS reached a significant milestone when it became accredited by the Middles States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSA-CESS). Since then the school has continued to grow and expand its program offerings. In 2009 AIMS became the first school in New Jersey to offer an ARMRIT accredited MRI training program, and just a few years later the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program became one of the select CAAHEP accredited sonography programs in the state. Since then the Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography and Neurodiagnostic Technologist programs have also been awarded programmatic accreditation by CAAHEP.
On September 17, 2015, AIMS opened its second location in Edison, NJ. The Edison Center provides additional classroom space to current students enrolled at the main campus in Piscataway, and it offers several career training programs for new students as well.
In early 2018, AIMS earned its second institutional accreditation when it became accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). In addition to becoming institutionally accredited by ABHES, the school sought and was awarded programmatic accreditation for the Surgical Technologist program.
Today, AIMS graduates continue to thrive in all corners of the healthcare industry. AIMS Education is recognized as one of the top healthcare training facilities in New Jersey and has developed affiliations with some of the largest teaching hospitals in the region. It is also one of the only allied health schools in the tri-state area that offers training for such a broad range of healthcare careers.
