Diploma in Records and Information Management (Level 6) (Closed to New Enrolments)


Qualification code OP620901

This programme will introduce you to the principles and practices associated with successfully managing electronic and paper-based business information from the time it is created to the time it is destroyed or becomes an archive. There is a growing need for qualified records managers as employers realise the need to access and manage business records for as long as they are legally required to do so. This is an interesting and challenging area to work in, where graduates help to manage the evidence that contributes to the accountability of New Zealand business. 

Professional registration

This qualification is accredited by Records and Information Management Professionals Australasia (RIMPA) for the purposes of professional membership.
