ALERT: NARA's Northeast Region offers the only online vital records course (14-SEP-2009)
The ability to quickly and easily access critical records and information is a major function of COOP. However, too often the COOP process emphasizes the physical infrastructure and systems, neglecting the identification and protection of vital records.
NARA's Vital Business Information Webinar addresses this need by presenting a step-by-step approach to developing a vital records program that is based on FEMA's Federal Continuity Directives. In four, 90-minute sessions we will cover identification, protection, accessibility and implementation of a scalable vital records program. Using take-home assignments, participants will develop all the components necessary for a comprehensive vital records program.
This course targets Federal employees and/or contractors who are individuals with records responsibilities, COOP managers, line managers and staff, information technology personnel, and employees of state and local government involved with vital records programs or emergency planning.
