Course Descriptions

The Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Certificate Program consists of a Strategy track, a Practitioner track, a Specialist track, and a Master track.

The ECM Strategy onsite workshop is only available on request to organizations that need to brief executives or users about the expected benefits, steps and resources for implementing ECM.

The ECM Practitioner track covers concepts and technologies for ECM, and is available as classroom training course leading to a Practitioner designation. It also incorporates the main elements from the ECM Strategy track, and we recommend that you start with this program or the 4 day Master track.

The ECM Specialist track covers global best practices for implementing ECM, and is available as classroom training course leading to a Specialist designation. It builds on the Practitioner track, which is why we recommend you first take the Practitioner course.

The ECM Master track provides you with a thorough understanding of ECM, with the main elements from all of the above training tracks, in addition to case study exercises. It is available as classroom training course.

You can either start directly with the master class or first take Practitioner and Specialist, before taking a 2-day master preparation workshop.
