Records Management Training Opportunities
Webinar Training New!
As a result of feedback received, the Records Analysis Section (RAS) will be offering the standard basic records management training delivered electronically as part of a pilot program to explore the possible expansion of our Web offerings. Each session will be limited to 25 participants and will be offered via GoToMeeting, which allows users to view the presenter’s screen and audibly connect through the phone or by using VoIP. Registration is required, but there is no cost for the training. Registration will close one week prior to the event date.

Visit the Library of Virginia's Records Management playlist on YouTube for short videos covering a range of topics, including:
- Introduction to the Virginia Public Records Act (VPRA)
- What is a public record?
- Filling out the Certificate of Records Destruction (RM-3 Form)
To schedule on-site training, contact your records analyst. There is no cost associated with training, however, you must guarantee a minimum of 30 participants in order for an analyst to travel outside the metro Richmond area. Analysts are also available to speak to professional groups and at conferences.
