Update on the University of Toronto’s RM Certificates

In case you missed the announcement earlier this year, all of the iSchool Institute’s courses (including its two records management certificates) are now run by the university’s School of Continuing Studies.

With one exception, the fall 2014 term courses will be taught by the same instructors as in past years. Katherine Chornoboy, Steve Knight, Caroline Werle and yours truly (Sheila Taylor) will teach the Certificate in RM Fundamentals (Toronto classroom) and David Hopkins will teach the online equivalent while Christine Ardern, Caroline Werle, and myself will teach the Certificate in RM Practice (Toronto classroom).

New to the teaching roster is Paula Lederman who will teach the online equivalent of the Certificate in RM Practice. At this time, in classroom courses are not offered in Ottawa or Edmonton as in the past.

For more information about the certificates or to register, please visit: Certificate in Records Management Fundamentals or Certificate in Records Management Practice.

Case in Point

That's A Lot of Records!
Often the requirement for a needs assessment is driven by a specific initiative being considered or an immediate problem to be solved, rather than a general desire to establish a corporate (or organization-wide) IM program. We had a client wanting to improve its management of a specific group of critical records – thousands of member files in paper, microform and digital formats containing hundreds of unique document types.
Assess, Plan and Schedule
Ergo reviewed the organization’s current practices for managing those records, compared those practices to best practices, and identified risks and areas for improvement. From there we developed a strategic plan with a focus on records storage and retention. The plan identified the operational, financial and technological requirements for implementing the recommended changes, improvements and enhancements in the lifecycle management of the member records. Activities in the plan were classified as short term (next 6-12 months), medium term (next 12-24 months) and longer term (next 25+ months).
Step by Step Success
Implementation of the strategic plan enabled this organization to ensure its member records are properly identified, organized, accessible, protected and retained as long as necessary to meet operational and other requirements.
