Online course ‘Introduction to Records Management'

9 mei 2019
ICA is very pleased to launch its first online course ‘Introduction to Records Management’ The course offers a practical introduction to implementing the main elements of records management.

 It uses the PARBICA model policy, record plan and disposal schedule as a basis and explains how to tailor them to suit any organisation’s records management needs. Whilst the principles and concepts covered in the course are applicable to digital records, the focus is on paper-based records, particularly in the section on appraisal of non-current records.
