The course is accessible to attendees with no prior knowledge or experience of information governance or information asset management, although it would be helpful to have a basic understanding of records and their properties such as that provided on FYI’s Introduction to Records Management.

  • "Very useful course. It's helped my focus on some updates that will improve the effectiveness of our Information Asset Register. It was great that we were able to discuss the cultural and change management aspects of implementing and maintaining an IAR." Anonymous, March 2024

  • "Heather couldn't have been more helpful and answered all the many questions in detail. I would be happy to recommend this course to others". Anonymous, February 2023.

  • "Really enjoyed training delivered by Heather. For such a dry subject, Heather made it sound interesting and whilst I might never love records management as much as Heather does, I might enjoy it a bit more now that I understand the subject matter a bit better." Anonymous, February 2023
