Image for Recordkeeping

The records management and document control of any organisation is fundamental in ensuring they meet their legal requirements, as well as strengthen their customer and staff relationships. 

TAFE SA offers two qualifications in Recordkeeping which ensure students have the specialist skills needed to support and manage the records management and document control requirements of any organisation.

The Certificate III in Recordkeeping allows students to work either exclusively in the area of records management and document control, or to have records management and document control as one of their workplace duties.  Students are provided with specialist training in records retrieval, control and disposal functions, as well as utilising a workplace knowledge management system.

The Certificate IV in Recordkeeping provides students with the supervisory skills needed to set-up, maintain and review an organisation’s records system, as well as provide solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems.  Students will also develop the ability to analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources, and identify and apply risk management processes related to records management and document control.

Both qualifications provide students with a variety of software skills highly sought after by employers including Microsoft Office and keyboarding skills.


Our Recordkeeping programs offer pathways to Certificate IV and Diploma in Business/Business Administration. These higher qualifications have excellent pathways to university degrees - click here to view these options.
