The Digital Preservation Training Programme (DPTP), is an award-winning programme, developed to meet the training needs of Records Managers, Archivists and Librarians

Digital Preservation Training Programme

our Training

Our courses seek to demystify digital preservation; concepts that are hard to understand are clearly explained.

We address the gap in skills / knowledge currently faced by archivists, records managers, librarians, curators, and museum staff.

We offer a form of continuing Professional Development.

We introduce basic concepts of digital preservation to beginners.

We actively maintain the relevance of the content by keeping up to date on technical and conceptual advances in digital preservation, digesting a wide range of content and clustering related ideas into exiting training packages. 

Our courses teach critical thinking directed at file formats, software, tools and systems.

We provide jargon-free training: we do not depend on IT software, coding, systems, or platforms in order to teach digital preservation; rather our aim is to explain how these things work to non-specialists. For this reason we try to avoid using technical terms wherever we can.

We have a very high customer satisfaction record and an excellent reputation in this field.
