CISS - Live Coursework
CISS - 2-Day Workshop begins with a full day of classroom sessions covering these topics:
Required reading: Safeguarding Cultural Properties
Following the first day’s sessions, candidates will participate in “hands-on” live scenarios during which they will be expected to analyze a situation, make the proper approach, and take initial steps to resolve the situation. A critique and recommendations will follow each scenario. Each candidate will participate in a minimum of two live scenarios as well as to observe and comment on others. There are thirty scenarios in the program, derived from institutional input and the recommendations of a number of protection managers.
A brief written exam will follow presentation and participation in live scenarios.
