Four Courses Available on ICA's Online Learning Platform

Have you taken any of our online learning courses? 

The ICA recognises the value and importance of initial training and continuing professional development to its membership. This is why we continue to expand our offering of online learning courses. This year we added a new course, “Managing Digital Archives”, and we have more courses in the works for 2022! All of these courses are available in English and French.  

Courses that are currently available: 

Newest Course 

The "Managing Digital Archives” course provides a thorough grounding in the management of archives in digital formats. It covers the processes around managing them, from deciding what records to collect and keep, through taking them into custody and ingest, to description and metadata management, preservation techniques and access provision. It also includes management in the context of modern organisations to provide learners with skills and knowledge to influence stakeholders and ensure that digital archives are valued and resourced. 

Learning materials provided for each section include video presentations background texts and/or presentation scripts, exercises, quizzes, resources lists and additional resources where ICA has the rights. There are also presentations on special topics and demonstration videos for some sections. Together these sections amount to a total of 60 hours. ICA will issue a certificate once the final assessment has been completed.
