The Government Information Strategy Unit develops training courses to support records management skill acquisition for people working in Tasmanian agencies. These courses are developed for the Tasmanian Government environment and relate very specifically to the legislative framework and requirements within Tasmania.

A comprehensive outline of TAHO courses, content and intended outcomes can be found here.

The training calendar for scheduled courses and events in 2017 can be downloaded here. Remember to check back regularly as additional items may be added as dates are confirmed.

We also offer courses customized to meet the specific needs of agencies. Irrespective of numbers attending, our fee for a full day course is a flat rate of $750, and $500 for a half day course. For more information about how we may assist, please contact us.


Please see our Presentations for additional materials, including training packages that may be further customised by agencies for in-house training purposes.
