AIC certification plan

The recent postings to the Conservation DistList re certification of
conservators make good points.  There are good reasons to have a
certification program but the profession must decide if the benefits
outweigh the costs. Conservators should take a look at the proposed
certification budget on the AIC website if they not already done so.
Also, although the professions are not exactly comparable,
conservators might find it interesting to ask archivists who are
certified by the Academy of Certified Archivists about the benefits
of the archival certification program which began in 1989.  ACA
members pay an annual fee to maintain their certification with the
funds used to pay ACA office expenses and develop new versions of
the examinations.
