Conservation And Restoration Training
This is a listing of training schools for the field of art conservation.
There are a variety of training and entry routes into the profession of conservation; for many the first step is a full-time academic course. Whereas training in Conservation has traditionally taken the form of an apprenticeship, in more recent years training in a recognized conservation course at a University has become the norm. Today it is more common for professional conservators to have taken a University course combined with a period of time as an intern.
"The scope of conservators' work has widened in recent years, and is no longer dominated by hands-on conservation. Conservators now expect to be involved with exhibitions, conservation science, preventive conservation, project management and advocacy work".
Within the various schools that teach conservation, the approach differs according the educational and vocational system within the country, and the focus of the school itself.
Many of the Conservation Associations and Professional Organizations also provide additional information about the schools in their respective fields and locations.
