AIMS International has several scholarship opportunities available for those who wish to attend the 2021 AIMS International Virtual Safety Seminar, but who may not have the financial means to attend on their own. New this year is the Jake Kaminsky Memorial Scholarship Award. Named after Jake Kaminsky, an AIMS Certified Maintenance Technician Level II and 2020 AIMS International Safety Seminar attendee.
Growing up less than 10 minutes from Six Flags Great America, Jake’s industry career began as a ride operator at 15 years old. A short time later, he transitioned to the maintenance department where learning about the technical aspects of coasters further ignited his passion. After Six Flags, Jake worked at SeaWorld and ultimately RMC where he accomplished his dream of building a roller coaster.
Jake was passionate, hardworking, and self-motivated. He knew every detail about roller coasters, how they operated and was eager to share his knowledge with anyone who would listen. He could tell you the meaning and importance of every single piece of hardware on any ride, was incredibly selfless and an amazing teacher.
Additionally, in a tribute to Alan Ramsey, a friend to anyone he met and possessing a passion and commitment for the amusement industry, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) is honored to provide five scholarships to the AIMS International Safety Seminar in his name. Alan is missed, but his positive impact on the industry will not be forgotten.
Scholarship applications are due by December 31, 2020 and application instructions can be found HERE.
OABA is also offering four scholarships to the AIMS International Virtual Safety Seminar. The application can be found HERE.
Registration for the 2021 AIMS International Virtual Safety Seminar is still available at the Early Bird rate of $495 through December 20, 2020 with the rate increasing to $595 on Monday, December 21. To secure the discounted Early Bird rate, attendees should visit aimsintl.org and register today.
