The Conservation of Built Heritage (CBH) course addresses many aspects of built heritage conservation, including definitions of heritage, management systems, documentation, condition assessments and treatments, visitor management and interpretation. The course has improved since its first edition in 2007 as it adapts to inputs and learns from experiences from past courses, including the well-known ICCROM Architectural Conservation Course (ARC).
The CBH course provides a broad understanding of both technical and managerial aspects of heritage conservation and management by:
- improving understanding of critical processes in conservation to apply them at the macro and micro levels
- improving strategic planning skills relevant to heritage conservation and management
- expanding understanding and awareness of current thinking, principles, and practices in built heritage conservation and management
