Document Control Essentials

Melbourne-based Aconex has been looking to dominate the Australasian market in more than just provision of SaaS construction collaboration software – it also wants to dominate delivery of document control training. I have written before (December 2010) about its training programme for document controllers, but this now appears to be delivered by a dedicated business, Document Control Essentials (DCE). This has just announced that it has become:

“… the first provider to offer a recognised qualification in document control in the Australian market. The Australian Skills Quality Authority has granted approval to Aegis Aspire, the registered training partner of DCE, to run the Certificate IV in Document Control in a Project Environment course as a vocational qualification.”

The course has apparently now been provided in “over 16” countries since early 2011, and now all participants will be entitled to the qualification directly after completing the course.

Regular readers may recall that in February I blogged about Perth, Western Australia-based neXadyne who had launched what it said were the world’s first accredited training courses for document control.

  1. It should be noted that neXadyne will soon offer a full suite of accredited Document Control Qualifications that were developed by neXadyne in consultation with industry leaders and Document Control specialists. The suite of courses provide students with the relevant Document Control training and qualifications sought and recognised by employers.
    The courses provide students with skills required for the complete range of Document Control roles – from Document Control entry level roles to Document Control management roles.

    As requested by industry, neXadyne will present the courses directly (as a Registered Training Organisation) to ensure that the courses are delivered and assessed by staff who are highly experienced trainers and qualified Document Control specialists.

    Before individuals and organisations undertake any Document Control training, neXadyne recommends that you research the units of competency offered to ensure that the training matches your requirements – True Document Control is NOT Records Management.

    Good day,
    Actually i am a nigerian interested in taking my document control skills to the next level but right now it seems its out of my reach since i can not have the training in my country. Could kindly help me out in any way?

    I am a Nigerian I wish to take my document control skills to the next level, I have been working as one for nine years. how can your Organization get to people like us?

    1. I am not sure if either Aconex or Nexadyne are active in Nigeria, but I know there are some vendors working with customers in other countries such as South Africa. The best approach might be to secure work on a project which is using one of the common SaaS systems and develop your skills “on the job” if you can.
      Regards, Paul
