Records Management Training Opportunities

Subscribe to VA-ROL for announcements of upcoming LVA-sponsored workshops.

*NEW!* Records officers are invited to join us on April 16 for Educate, Participate, & Motivate: Making the Most of Your Records Program.

Online Training

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)

In-Person Training

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.
