Classes are taught primarily by IG expert and author of 6 books on IG Robert Smallwood, who is our lead instructor, along with other Subject Matter Experts including Robin Woolen, IGP, Charmaine Brooks, CRM, Dr. Pat Franks, CRM, IGP, Charles Dollar, Lori Ashley, and others. Not only are our classes led by top experts in the field, but also we offer comprehensive accompanying textbooks for you to follow along and keep as a reference.
And not only can you follow along and study your textbook, but we also include educational (and sometimes entertaining) videos, hold whiteboard classroom discussions, and take “field trips” to vendor demos and webinars. The best way to learn is not ‘death by PowerPoint.’ So we mix it up and keep things lively!
Learn about everything from e-discovery to data governance to IT governance to IG.

Your Expert Instructor Appears LIVE in an HD Video Window for You to Ask Questions & Participate in Discussions!
For the live online classes, we use WebEx for delivering the HD video classes and so, if taking the class at work, you must be able to install the WebEx client on your PC (many organizations require approval before installing new software), which you can test load from here:http://www.webex.com/test-meeting.html
You can use any browser, (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, or Safari for Mac) but Explorer is preferred. You will need a direct broadband connection, as WiFi may be too slow to steadily receive the HD video stream.
Also, you should have a working mic and speaker on your PC since we use VoIP to transmit audio. Although you will have the ability to raise your hand electronically and to submit questions via chat, a mic will allow you to, at times, participate in Q&A discussions following each chapter..
“It was better than just reading the book, which is an excellent resource; but receiving instruction with the book through this training made it clearer, and I was better able to stay focused. I am hoping to enroll in ERM – Advanced!”
- Senior Records Officer, Legal, Major Telecom
"I LOVED this class because it sets the basic knowledge level for all members of a team and
does so by progressively disclosing the required knowledge in a logical fashion for folks rolling out
IG programs to cover paper & electronic records (as we are).” RIM Program Lead, Fortune 500 Corp.

The Institute for Information Governance brings you this educational capability using the latest in learning technology and a traditional textbook which is the most complete and current reference available today.
The IG Basic Concepts and Fundamentals (“IG-B”) and the IG Advanced Concepts, Strategies, and Best Practices (“IG-A”) online classes are based primarily on Chapters 1-18 of the book, Information Governance: Concepts, Strategies, and Best Practices (Wiley, 2014). The classes are held in a live, interactive setting, delivered remotely. Attendees can electronically “raise their hand” and ask questions, and collaborate with others in virtual breakout sessions.
IG-B is for those with little or no experience in IG; it is helpful if the participants have a foundational understanding of one or more of the key IG impact areas: records management, legal, IT, and/or Privacy & Security.
IG-A is for those who have completed the IG-B class successfully, or for those who have had some training and experience in IG.
Each 3-day IG or ERM class is approved for 14 Certification Maintenance Points for CRMs, as approved by the Institute for Certified Records Managers. IG Basics is approved for 8.5 credits.
The ERM Basic Concepts and Fundamentals (“ERM-B”) and the ERM Advanced Methods and Best Practices (“ERM-A”) online classes are based primarily on Chapters 1-23 of the book, Managing Electronic Records: Methods, Best Practices and Technologies (Wiley, 2013).

ERM-A is for those who have completed the ERM-B class successfully, or for those who have had some training and experience in ERM. Those who have taken AIIM’s ERM Master or Specialist classes would benefit from this advanced course.
