Hands-on Electronic Document and Records Management Systems Training

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 be run by Paul Mullon who is recognized by the South African National Archives as a records management consultant. Paul has worked closely with the National Archives on the implementation of International Standards in South Africa and convenes a worldwide ISO working group on long term preservation of electronic records. He is a member of SABS (SA Bureau of Standards) and ISO Technical Committees for both Document Management Applications (ECM) and Records Management, often heads up the South Africa delegation to ISO committee meetings and acts as the liaison between various ISO Technical Working Committees. He is a highly sought after speaker with many years’ experience in the industry.

This programme closely follows the Requirements for Records Managers in the Public Sector as set out by the National Archives and Records Service (NARS) and is ideal for Records Managers in the Public Sector who have not been through the National Archives training. It covers all the content required by NARS for compliance to their Directives. This programme is a must for any staff member who has been appointed to the position of records manager, or who has been allocated those responsibilities.

The people who will benefit most from this training would be:

• Records Managers
• Senior Registry Officials
• Departmental managers responsible for Records Management
• Departmental/unit records coordinators
• IT staff responsible for records management

Because of the interactive nature of this course, attendance is restricted to 25 delegates so please register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Duration: 5 Days

Course Fees: R16,500.00 excluding VAT.
