Records Management Training


In 2020, the Records Management Training Program ended its in-person workshops and moved to an all-online, self-paced format.  Now, you can take our records management training on your own schedule, for free.

Our Online Learning page Online Lessons gives you access to all of the training lessons we have developed.  While we no longer offer the Certificate of Federal Records Management Training, everyone can explore training content on a variety of records management topics found in our Training Catalog .

We are currently developing new training materials on a variety of topics.  If you would like to suggest new topics and training products, send your ideas to rmt1@nara.gov.
