The RIBA Advanced Conservation Course is an important step in developing your specialism in conservation.
The course’s emphasis is conservation in practice, presenting fresh and diverse projects and case studies that showcase the work of small and emerging, as well as larger well established practices to demonstrate the full range of core skills needed by conservation architects, including the growing importance of the conservation of C20th buildings.
