Education of conservators
Why is university level education important?
-Today , the field is very complex; the apprentice system is too unreliable.
-If there are university programs, funding is more availible for research/development
-Paves the way for eventual qualification/accreditation
-Allows for ease movement for professionals- global job market (cooperating between different countries)
-Encourages the process of self-education which SHOULD continue for the entire career of conservator
