Our Training Materials Catalog contains most of the training materials that we develop, including all of the new online lessons that are part of the new training curriculum that we call Curriculum 2.0.

The catalog includes:



Training Development


We develop:

  • Online Learning 
  • Videos and Webinars
  • Job Aids
  • Practice Activities that Agencies Can Use to Train Employees

Agency training needs and changes in NARA records management policies influence what training we develop.

We also develop customized training for specific agencies; however, most of the time we try to build training that can be used by multiple agencies.

Please send your requests for new training materials to rmt1@nara.gov.




We host webinars on records management topics that are of interest to Federal records managers.
