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 the basic knowledge and skills required for Information professionals (OR2 to SO3 and CS equivalents) working at a practitioner level. 

Building upon the successful completion of Module 2, Module 3 provides you with the additional knowledge and skills to extend your supervisory skillset and prepares you for roles as senior ISO or acting iManager. It is recommended that you wait a minimum of three months after Module 2 before applying for Module 3 in order to practise the skills learnt.
