Four hundred (400) hours of documented conservation experience under the supervision of a collections professional are required, which may include involvement in supervised collection care projects such as collection assessments, rehousing, and exhibition design, as well as examination and treatment of individual artifacts. Above all, applicants are expected to be thoroughly acquainted with conservation as a career option and to possess a fundamental knowledge of its philosophy, ethics, and basic working procedures.
