 Records Management 1


Course Overview:

Organisations face increasing pressure to manage their records according to statutory and business requirements.  As the use of electronic records and the deployment of electronic document and records management systems continue to increase, the core skills of the person responsible for records management become ever more important to the organisation.

This invaluable training course, led by John Wilson, examines core concepts of good records management practice.

This introductory level session provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of records management, including:

  • introduction - basic concepts
  • records management tools
  • records lifecycle approach
  • designing a file plan
  • records destruction
  • legal framework / compliance
  • management of electronic records and email

Delegates who attend the Classroom sessions are encouraged to share their own experiences and ask questions throughout the day. 

This course, taken together with Records Management 2 and Records Management 3, provides a thorough understanding of the entirety of the Records Management process. A discount is available for delegates booking all three Records Management courses together on a Classroom basis (see fees section below).
