On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate the ability to carry out a range of observations and techniques, and the use of a variety of laboratory equipment;
2. Assess, predict and record additions, repairs and restorations involved in the sustainable conservation of heritage materials, artefacts and structures; and
3. Demonstrate through practical exercises on cultural heritage materials an understanding of the techniques involved in the conservation repair and restoration of cultural heritage materials.
