FAIC Professional Development Courses

Next column: JAIC News >>


FAIC professional development courses are a crucial source for continuing education for conservation professionals in the United States and abroad. Many of these are hands-on, lab-based experiences that are not offered anywhere else in the world. Full course descriptions and registration information are available at https://learning.culturalheritage.org/.

With the support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and contributions from individuals, FAIC established an endowment fund for professional development activities. Some workshops are also supported by additional sources, as noted below.
