LSU School of Library & Information Science and ICRM Announce PartnershipJanuary 18, 2017 Dear ZRA members,
As Chair of the Professional Development Committee, I wanted to share this recent press release with you, the Louisiana State University (LSU) School of Library and Information Science and the Institute of Certified Records Managers (ICRM) have announced its partnership. Beginning in the spring of 2017, LSU will launch its online Graduate Certificate in Records and Information Management. As indicated in the press release, due to the rigor of the program, students completing the certificate will qualify as passing parts 1-5 of the Certified Records Manager (CRM) or parts 2-4 for the Certified Records Analyst (CRA) designations. If they choose to go for the CRM, they will still have to apply directly to the Institute to take Part 6 to be certified. Otherwise, at a minimum a student is able to contact the ICRM upon completion of the certificate program and request CRA membership.
If you follow the links to the LSU program, you can read full details on requirements for admission, tuition and related details. At the end of the press release you will find information about the ARMA Education Foundation and the various grants you can apply for in terms of financial assistance.
Please let me know if you have any questions, if I can’t answer them I will refer you to the people who can.
Thanks so much,
