Fundamentals of Document Control

Fundamentals of Document Controls Training Course


The 3-day Fundamentals of Document Control training course is a one-of-a-kind course, designed and developed by Mireaux based on more than 18 years of creating, managing, and improving documentation for organizations around the world.

If you have been dealing with a Document Management System (DMS) but never received formal training, this course will help you debunk many of the myths surrounding Document Control. Regardless of the standard your organization complies or is certified to, once you attend our Fundamentals of Document Control course, you will feel empowered to improve your own system and question the status quo.

If you are new to the world of Document Control and the ISO or API standards, you will be amazed at the vast knowledge you will gain upon completion of this course.

This remarkable course touches on the following areas:

  • The Document Life Cycle and the requirements regarding Document Control.
  • The implementation of a Document Management System, from defining the types of documents to be used in your organization, to the numbering, version, content writing, review, approval, distribution, training, and improvement of those documents.
  • Process mapping and writing techniques that lead to the creation of well-rounded documents.
  • Best practices associated with engineering and project management documents, such as Databooks, Transmittals, PI&D, Project Plans, etc.

The course is filled with practical exercises and real application examples to help participants develop a hands-on understanding that will facilitate the implementation of a world-class Document Management System.
