Perth, Western Australia-based neXadyne has launched what it says are the world’s first accredited training courses for document control. The company, experienced in the mining and oil and gas sectors, has developed its courses in collaboration with leading Australian companies, and the qualifications have been accredited by the Training Accreditation Council Western Australia.
neXadyne’s Deborah Wilson stresses the qualifications are focused on document control rather than records management, and are not affiliated with any software or vendor (Melbourne-based SaaS collaboration vendor Aconex launched its own courses last year – post). She continues:
“To date there has never been a qualification for Document Controllers that has been accredited by a government body. Our courses address this issue and set benchmarks by which companies can use to gauge relevant experience of potential and existing Document Control employees.
“Western Australia is currently experiencing a boom in the Mining and Resource sector. As such, industry demand for qualified Document Controllers is at an all-time high. With companies investing billions of dollars in new projects, there has never been a better time than now to ensure that project documentation is being correctly handled by trained and qualified staff.”
