By Preservation Maryland

Preservationists in Maryland benefit from being regionally connected to some of the best training and advocacy opportunities. One of the best resources for professional training in historic preservation comes from the National Preservation Institute, based in Alexandria, VA, that hosts seminars across the country to educate those involved in the management, preservation, and stewardship of cultural heritage. Here’s a sampling of what’s available in the DMV area this year and next:

Professional Training Seminars

The National Preservation Institute offers continuing education and professional training for those involved in the management, preservation, and stewardship of cultural heritage. The diversity of seminars serves a broad spectrum of individuals and groups from the government and private sectors by providing professional training seminars in historic preservation and cultural resource management.

Customized/On-Site Training

NPI offers customized on-site training to meet specific organizational needs from currently offered seminars, and has the capacity to development new content.
