Training documentation

When we conduct or attend compliance training sessions, there’s a sign-in sheet.  What if that gets fudged and someone gets a pass when he or she shouldn’t have?

Tulsa Probe Eyed Reserve Deputy’s Certification,” Wall Street Journal, April 25, 2015 A2.  Questions about the certification of the reserve deputy who allegedly shot and killed man.  The reserve deputy may have mistaken his gun for his Taser.

One of the reasons companies do training is to prevent accidents.  Another reason is to insulate the company from liability.  If there is an accident, the company wants to prove it trained the employee and he or she didn’t follow that training.  But what if the documents around that training, or the competence of the trainee, are ambiguous?

Is this part of information governance?
