Records and Information Management Course

Records and Information Management Course


Gain a solid understanding of the records lifecycle, including records management concepts and techniques. We delve into records inventorying, retention and destruction scheduling, inactive and vital records management and the application of records management practices to electronic record


Records and Information Management is affected by changes in regulations, technology, organizational needs and community needs. A good records and information manager needs to be armed with the latest skills and knowledge in best practices, regulated processes and cost efficiencies to support their organization and its stakeholders.


Understanding how to appropriately meet these challenges requires a precarious mixture of: systems change & integration, proactive record management and frequently an accompanying cultural shift at an organisational level. 


Designed to enhance efficiency and effectiveness of the delegates, the seminar will provide in-depth analysis of the key issues and challenges facing those responsible for records and information management in the current operational environment.

Real-world case studies will be used to illustrate key points for delivering a successful RIM project which can generate significant organisational benefits and cost savings.

This practical training course will provide plenty of opportunity for interaction and discussion, in order to assist delegates in determining the potential pitfalls when implementing RIM systems, and how to avoid them, through a detailed understanding of all the implications.

With an abundance of practical and engaging information management scenarios this program is designed to tutor new staff members and at the same time stands as a refresher for the more experienced ones.
