Course Overview

Do you want to be a Document Controller? What does Document Control mean? This course will offer participants the important foundations and best practices for document control. This program is designed to provide expertise to those who want to develop their skills as a document controller.

At the very core of the quality management system are the management and the control of documents. If you are looking for an effective document control system, it only means that compliance is at the back of your mind. The use of out-of-date versions of documents can affect the efficiency, quality, and cause financial losses to the organization.

Document control ensures that only approved documents are used and in circulation throughout the organization. In the contemporary work environment and the modern styles of operations, there are multiple meetings and documents created for innovative processes and procedures. All this cannot be retained by memory and so a document plays a very important role.

Large companies need to focus on their document control staff, who will ensure document quality procedures are followed and specialized tools are used to keep control of their documents and compliance in the workplace. It is well known that most of the non-compliance is reported through the document audits on the basis of ISO9001 QMS.

A lot of businesses struggle to retrieve their required documents. Document Control is a powerful system for retrieving the correct documents at the right time. There is no wastage of productivity and time when it comes to a proper Document Control System established within an organization.

Control of documents could also mean functions like editing and modification of documents, updates added to current and existing documents, withdrawal of old and expired documents and the security of the original documentation.

A good Document Controller ensures that the document and information obtained in the hands of an officer or executive are the most up to date one. A good document control system also progresses towards the concept of paperless process automation.

This course on Document Control Training offered by Zoe Talent Solutions will empower participants to understand the foundations of controlling a document from start to finish in a particular department or project. You learn to play a vital role in delivering the most relevant reports and statistics on documents maintained.

Through this program, you will learn to draft fool-proof document policies and have a regulation on the movement of documents. It will provide the participants with a high level of skills and knowledge of Document Control currently practised in the industry.

This course is very essential to both, those wanting to start their career in Document Control Management, and those who want to climb the ladder as a Document Controller.
