A record is anything that provides information. A record may be on any type of media: paper or electronic, digital or analog, magnetic or optical, liquid or solid…. In today’s technological environment, organizations must learn how to handle these records so that they can be used as needed in the future. Records must be managed from the time they are created or received, through distribution, use, and maintenance, until they are finally destroyed or permanently archived.
This Advanced Records Management course will give a basic overview of records management terminology, concepts, and procedures to successfully manage records in today’s offices. Regardless of the media on which the record is stored, the record must be properly managed to be an asset to the organization. Another important component of a professional records management program is legality issues. A comprehensive, legally-sound records retention schedule must be developed and strictly followed so that the company is not held liable for problems that could have been avoided in the first place.
Should records be stored on paper, in an electronic format, in a microform? How is a Records Inventory conducted? What are the steps in the development of a company-wide Records Retention Schedule? How are records archived? This course will assist you in making those decisions based upon certain characteristics of the records. Also, the rules established by the Association of Records Managers and Administrators (ARMA) will be used for the proper coding and filing of records.
Each section of this online course contains learning objectives, review questions, practical applications, and assignment activities for the student to study for mastery of content.
