Records Management Training Opportunities


Visit the Library of Virginia's Records Management play list on YouTube for videos that provide the fundamentals for developing a program, including:

    • Introduction to the Virginia Public Records Act (VPRA)
    • What is a public record?
    • Completing the Certificate of Records Destruction (RM-3 Form)



Records Management Analysts are available to speak to professional groups and at conferences, as well as provide on-site training. A minimum of 25 participants is required for an analyst to travel outside the Richmond metro area. To schedule a presentation or training, contact your assigned records management analyst.



Records management training via GoToMeeting, which allows users to view the presenter’s screen and audibly connect through the phone or by using VoIP, is provided from time to time. 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 the Va Records Officers' List (VA-ROL). Subscribe to receive notice of all upcoming LVA-sponsored and other RM educational events.

For questions or to set up a targeted webinar, contact your assigned analyst.


Disaster Preparedness

Intergovernmental Preparedness for Essential Records (IPER) was an eight week webinar aimed at helping agencies of the commonwealth 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.
