Records Management Training Opportunities


Webinar Training

As a result of feedback received, the Records Management section plans to offer 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.

    There are no webinar events scheduled at this time. 

Future events will be announced here and via VA-ROL. Subscribe to receive notice of all upcoming LVA-sponsored educational events.

Online Training

Visit the Library of Virginia's Records Management play list 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)


In-person Training

      In-person training is on hold until additional records management analysts are recruited, hired, and trained.

To schedule on-site training, contact your records analyst. A minimum of 25 participants is needed in order for an analyst to travel outside the metro Richmond area. Analysts are also available to speak to professional groups and at conferences.

Disaster Preparedness

Intergovernmental Preparedness for Essential Records (IPER) was an eight week webinar aimed at helping state and local offices identify and prioritize essential records and create a disaster plan. The course is now available in a generic format, and may be reviewed and completed online in your own time.
