Information Management Training

At ALGIM we've been involved in information management for decades. We know how complex it can be, so we've worked closely with Kerri Siatiras, an independent consultant and IM expert, to develop two great courses for local government IM professionals.

  1. Executive Sponsor Course
  2. IM and Record Keeping Course

We'll come to you, so there's no need to travel. All that will be required from your end is a room to run the course in, printing off the training booklets, and tea and coffee.

You don't need to go it alone!

We have minimum numbers so we can run the courses, but we know that in many councils, especially those with smaller teams, it can be hard to gather those numbers.

That's why we recommend that you get your neighbours on board, pool your resources and numbers, and get the chance to network with your colleagues while you're at it.

What did people say about the trainings?

"The breadth of topics covered was over the entire span of records and gave me some good ideas to follow up within our organisation as both an archivist and member of digital transformation steering group. Kerri's experience of both records and archives, as well as working with large institutions, was of great help when asking targeted questions."

"A clear overview of what it means [to be an executive sponsor] and what needs to be done."

"All aspects of the workshop were valuable, however I particularly found the classification structures, metadata and the discussion about key legislations and standards most valuable."

"I really enjoyed learning about all the layers/aspects of records management, some of which I had not known of before but made sense and added depth. Thank you!"
