The 2011 Records Management Training program kicked off with the first workshop held at the Public Service Centre for Training & Development at Nasese on the 23rd & 24th February, 2011.

This training program is done through the joint partnership of the Public Service Commission and the National Archives of Fiji.

The timing of the workshop was most appropriate as the Public Service Commission had just two weeks prior notified all government departments & ministry heads the implementation of the National Records Management Policy.

The two days workshop which was mainly conducted by a staff from the National Archives had a occupancy of thirty five participants. This was five more than the initial confirmed number of participants.

“Managing records properly, means that we are putting into place processes and procedures that will help sustain such records, but most importantly, how they can be easily accessed over time” Ms Marama Tara, course coordinator said during the closing of the Workshop.

“What each of us have learnt during the two days should be transferred to the work that we do in our offices”, a Police Officer mentioned during the closing speeches of the Workshop. “This workshop has been an eye opener for many of us, we now know the importance of records, why they should be maintained properly, but most significantly their relevance to us now and in our future”.

Similar workshops are scheduled to be held in Lautoka in May and Labasa in July.
