RSUA Conservation Training Course
Location: Ulster Musuem, Belfast
Date: 17 February 2015
The RSUA is running a 6 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 NIEA 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 will be co-ordinated by Jill Kerry 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 of lectures maintaining the high reputation that the previous RSUA courses have held.
