Orange County Chapter of ARMA International

In consideration of growing concerns about COVID-19, we have decided to change the format of our workshop to a virtual classroom for those who have registered already.

To better manage the needs of current registrants, we have closed the registration window on Friday, March 13th. 

Additional details have been communicated to current registrants via email.

Andrew Ysasi and Megan Butcher look forward to connecting with current registrants in the virtual classroom via WebEx and apologize for any inconvenience.

Questions or concerns may be communicated to President@OCARMA.org. 

The Institute of Certified Records Managers (ICRM) is one of ARMA's Corporate Partners and an international certification body that provides credentials to those working in the RIM profession. After 44 years of service to the RIM profession, ICRM certification continues to be the gold standard for records managers to advance their skills and competencies and ultimately their RIM careers.

The CRM/CRA Exam Prep Workshop contains preparation on Parts 1 - 6 of the ICRM Exam.


The workshop will include an overview of the ICRM Exams associated with the Certified Records Analyst (CRA) and Certified Records Manager (CRM) credentials including qualifications, application process and a review of the material covered in Parts 1 - 6, with sample questions.


Attaining ICRM Certification is based on educational background, professional work experience and successful completion of Parts 1 - 6 for the Certified Records Manager (CRM) or Parts 2 - 4 for the Certified Records Analyst (CRA):

  • Part 1 – Management Principles and the Records and Information (RIM) Program
  • Part 2 – Records and Information: Creation and Use
  • Part 3 – Records Storage, Retrieval, Conversion and Facilities
  • Part 4 – Records Appraisal, Retention, Protection and Disposition
  • Part 5 – Technology
  • Part 6 – Business Case


Parts 1 - 5 each consist of 100 multiple-choice questions and are based on fundamental records and information management practices, and represent the best practices in the industry. These questions are chosen as equally as possible from all parts of the Annotated Outlines.


There is no better way to prepare for the ICRM certification process than to attend sessions designed to prepare you with the knowledge, tools and strategies for passing this rigorous examination. The information presented by RIM professionals certified by the ICRM will be invaluable to you as you achieve your certification.




Professionals attending this workshop will receive information on the qualification and application process for the CRA and CRM credentials:

  •  A detailed overview of the material covered in Parts 1-5 (including 20 sample questions for each part).
  • An overview of Part 6, the case study portion of the exam, with strategic tips for passing as well as the Pearson VUE electronic testing environment.
