Course Description

The Advanced Records Management Training course is designed to stretch the thinking of those who have been in the records management industry for some time. We discuss advanced concepts in a workshop environment and test traditional thinking. This programme is not suited for new records managers or those just starting out in the industry. Delegates from the private and public sector will benefit from this programme. Staff members responsible for Information Governance in their organisations will benefit and be able to take back some of the concepts to expand on traditional records and archives thinking.

This workshop will equip those with records management responsibilities to further their careers by being able to converse at a strategic level regarding current important topics in records and information management.
