Qualifications for museum positions

From: Frank A. Reynolds <fr0c>
Date: Monday, September 18, 2000
I am Hunt Institute's photographer and I am writing a job "position
description" for my position.  I have to fill in a section on
education/training and I am finding it hard to equate 20 or so years
of on-the-job experience with formal training.

If you where hiring someone (like a photographer) that would be
handling rare or valuable works in your collection, that is not a
curator or conservator, what would be the type of formal training
and/or experience you would like them to have?  If you thought they
needed formal training where would you send them, before you
released them unsupervised on your collections?
