Public Records Training

The Office of Open Records Counsel offers free training to governmental entities, groups, and organizations wishing to learn more about the Tennessee Public Records Act and Tennessee Open Meetings Act. The training is designed to enhance knowledge about the rights and responsibilities set forth in these laws. We cover topics such as how to receive public record requests, how to respond to public record requests, how much to charge for public records, public records policies, and what records are confidential. 

Training is generally provided to groups of 15 or more. Please try to schedule training with the office at least 2-3 months in advance to ensure availability.
