RM Training

57846-20150225We are pleased to announce the launch of a new introductory training programme for records management and archiving staff, in conjunction with Rammell Consulting Ltd.

The training comprises three 1-day modules spread over a year. At only £295 (plus VAT) per day, this represents excellent value for money. We also provide a £50 discount for delegates attending the whole 3-day programme, making completion of the programme only £835 (plus VAT).

The curriculum across the 3 modules covers all of the fundamental principles that a records management or archive professional needs to know at an introductory level.

Our focus is on colleagues working in life sciences regulated environments (e.g. GLP, GCP, GMP), though a significant proportion of the content would be equally applicable in other sectors too. So, if you are a new archive assistant, archivist, document administrator, records manager or in another similar role and are looking for a training programme that covers the full scope of records management activities, this is the programme for you! Or perhaps you have a new member of staff in your organisation who would benefit from such a programme.

Our course venue is located adjacent to London’s Heathrow Airport so is great for transport links either within the UK or for delegates flying in from outside the UK. Our venue also provides overnight accommodation (booked separately by delegates) if needed, with prices from just £65/night. Our start time of 09:30am allows for delegates travelling to the venue on the morning of the course.

Full details of our training programme aresummarised below and can be found HERE.
