Course Description

The Hands-on Electronic Document and Records Management Systems (EDRMS) training is the first of its kind in Southern Africa. This programme is completely hands-on and is designed to give delegates real experience in working with electronic documents and records. Using Microsoft Sharepoint as a platform, users are taught the basics, and then build a system from scratch. Note, this is not purely for IT specialists, as it is designed to be end-user focused. Delegates will learn how to perform document preparation, scanning and indexing using a production scanning hardware and software system. Electronic (born-digital) documents will be created from templates, using best practices in document control and Microsoft Word properties. Workflows will be created and run, with users taking part as document authors, creators, approvers and publishers. This is a must-do course, and delegates will feel much more comfortable when implementing back at the office.

The course will achieve the following objectives:

* This programme is designed to equip delegates with the hands-on skills necessary to understand, plan for and implement an Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS).

* The course uses Microsoft Sharepoint as the platform, but is designed to teach electronic document and records management implementation issues in a manner which applies to any system. It is product-neutral and highlights the typical activities one would expect in a live environment.

* Users will be able to create templates, documents, workflows, records, and simulate working with real documents, including a live scanning environment.
