Is it the same as the 'Certified Document Controller' Training Course?

Please note that these courses are different from the Certified Courses & Exam which have to be done face-to-face.


The e-learning courses are beneficial to:

- get an introduction to Document Control (Modules 1 to 3)

- learn more on specific Document Control subjects (Modules 3 to 5)


E-learning courses & Face-to-Face courses are actually quite complementary: do they do not cover the same scope.


The Certification Examination is only delivered in a face-to-face setting.
