Certificate in Historic Building Conservation

12 day course beginning 0930 for 1000 Wednesday 27th October 2010

Clifton House, 2 North Queen Street, Belfast, BT15 1EQ

The RSUA is running a 12 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 assist those wishing to gain formal accreditation through the RIBA, AABC or RIAI Conservation Registers, but will be of equal benefit to technologists, planners and surveyors involved in conservation work. It is understood that NIEA are moving towards a requirement for formal accreditation as a condition of historic building grant aid.

The programme is based on the format of the ‘’ training website which has been agreed across a wide range of professional and statutory bodies.

The course will be co-ordinated by Jill Kerry, with assistance from Laurence Manogue, and the speakers will be a mix of local and national experts.  The ‘lecture’ days will be hosted at Clifton House, Belfast.  This is an intensive course combining lectures, three written assignments and two practical days, maintaining the high reputation previous courses have held.

On completion of the Certificate course, there is the option of completing a dissertation to gain the RSUA Diploma in Historic Building Conservation.

Cost for 12 day course £1440 + VAT (PSS member £1250 + VAT)
