The CIOB Academy is offering a conservation course this month in Swansea with London dates later in the year.

Understanding Building Conservation is a two-day course designed to improve decision-making when working on and managing traditional buildings, including both unprotected traditional buildings, and those which are protected due to their historic significance.

Open to anyone who works with traditional buildings the course is also an integral part of the CIOB Conservation Certification Scheme which requires all those applying for Certification to successfully complete this course unless they have an approved qualification in the subject. 

The course however is stand alone and those participating need not be CIOB members or have an interest in the CIOB Conservation Certification scheme. It is an ideal grounding to all those new to conservation and seeking to improve results for clients on conservation projects.

The course costs £295 and will be delivered by John Edwards who is also the CIOB’s lead assessor on the CIOB’s Conservation Certification Scheme.
