NARA's national training program includes courses in six "Areas of Knowledge" that are relevant to anyone responsible for managing Federal records and comprise NARA's Certificate in Federal Records Management Training Program. Other courses in the national curriculum include Basic Records Operations, Electronic Records Management, and three half-day courses targeting program managers, legal counsel, and information technology professionals. In addition, some training locations offer focused records management workshops of particular need in their regions.
