FRC ARCIS Training

The Federal Records Centers have developed a number of resources to help you learn about ARCIS. We offer computer-based training tutorials on three topics that you can review anytime and learn at your own pace. For agencies that have deployed the upgraded version of ARCIS (user administration, access controls, records transfers) we offer video training videos that detail specific attributes of all facets of the system. In addition, you can also reference one of the available manuals, or contact the ARCIS Help Desk for assistance.
