Participants on the Engineering Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS) online training course will learn by active participation through the use of a wide variety of instructional techniques. The intention is that the trainer will explain issues, using real examples, but will then involve the delegates in discussion, using the information provided. Examples of procedures will be used.

There will be group exercises to allow for a “hands on” approach to learning. Case studies will be utilised to present “best practices” approaches. In addition there will be in depth discussion of critical success factors.

Delegates are encouraged to bring real problem examples with them, for discussion on a confidential basis, and to share their experience of particular issues in their company or industry. Time will be allowed for general discussions, and for one-to-one discussion with the trainer.


The Engineering Electronic Document Management Systems (EDMS) online training course covers all the essential skills needed to understand, use and apply Electronic Document Management Systems in an Engineering environment. There will be discussions on the use of software, best practice implementation as well as applying all the key concepts.

This EuroMaTech online training course will concentrate on the skills required to effectively deploy and maximise the benefit of electronic document management, archiving, version control and storage within Engineering departments as well as manage the outcomes and deliver business benefits. All participants will return to their organisations with a detailed understanding and have developed action plans to implement electronic archiving successfully in their organisations.
