RSUA Conservation Course

02 October 2018

This course is now fully booked - please contact Jeanette Hedley 028 90323760 to be placed on the waiting list

The RSUA is running a 5 day course in Historic Building Conservation aimed at architects and related professionals working in the fields of conservation, refurbishment and restoration.  This course is designed to meet the formal accreditation criteria for the Conservation Registrant (CR) level of the recently introduced RIBA Conservation Register but will be of equal benefit to technologists, planners and surveyors involved in conservation work.  

It is understood that HED (Historic Environment Division DfC) are moving towards a requirement for formal accreditation as a condition of historic building grant aid.  The Heritage Lottery Fund require all architects involved in work which they are funding to be conservation accredited.  

The course programme is based on the ICOMOS Education and Training Guidelines and the format of the www.understandingconservation.org training website which has been agreed across a wide range of professional and statutory bodies.  Full details of the RIBA Accreditation Scheme can be found on the RIBA website.  

The course will be co-ordinated by Marcus Patton and the speakers will be a mix of local and national experts.  The ‘lecture’ days will be hosted at Armagh County Club, Armagh and Chamber in Palace Building, Armagh and there will also be on-site experience.  Please also note that as Halloween falls during this time there will be no lecture day on Tuesday 30th October.  This is an intensive course of lectures maintaining the high reputation that the previous RSUA courses have held.  

If you have any queries about this course please contact Jeanette Hedley jeanette@rsua.org.uk or on 028 9032 3760.
