About this course

The Knowledge and Information Management (KIM) Pathway is a series of modules designed and created by Information Capability for personnel in information professional roles. Through (virtually) guided online learning and assessments, the KIM Pathway teaches you the basic knowledge and skills required for Information professionals (OR2 to SO3 and CS equivalents) working at a practitioner level. 

Module 2 follows completion of Module 1 and is the approximate equivalent of the former ISO course.  

To continue on the KIM Pathway, you should have successfully completed Module 1.

(NB: If you have completed the ISA or ISO course at the Defence Academy in the last two years you may be exempt from having to complete KIM Pathway Modules 0, 1 or 2. If you feel this may apply to you then please contact the course administrator via the 'ask about this course' link at the of this page).

What you will learn

You will learn/develop:
  • an understanding of the foundation knowledge, skills and behaviours of an Information professional.

  • an understanding of how to produce a TeamSite on SPOL using lists, calendars, pictures, and MOD document libraries

  • to manage and control SPOL permissions for your organisation
  • to manage O365 Administrators successfully in completing their tasks. 
  • to design effective collaborative working platforms using SPOL
