If you have a passion for conservation, and want to develop specialist knowledge and skills, this is your first step towards specialisation.  The course will also enable you to apply for recognition of your skills and experience in the forthcoming CIOB Building Conservation Certification Scheme in 2017.

It will also be delivered in the context of the latest British Standard BS 7913: 2013: Guide to the Conservation of Historic Buildings and include sustainability and energy efficiency. This Standard is the only UK wide authoritative guide to the conservation of historic buildings and is internationally recognised as authoritative best practice.
