FAIC Emergency Planning Online Course

Registration is open for FAIC's online Emergency Planning course which will take place September 14 - November 20, 2020. Conservation professionals often work in institutions with emergency plans, but those plans are not always up-to-date. There is a need for resources to assess, update, and revise plans, as well as to help create and implement training materials. This course allows and encourages professionals from collecting institutions to not only update their emergency plans, but to ensure that staff is trained to implement the plans in the case of an event.

Laser Cleaning Workshop

Participants will learn about the physics of what happens during laser cleaning treatments, important safety protocols, and the general benefits of using environmentally friendly, precise laser cleaning as an alternative to chemical or abrasive methods. Effective applications as well as the limitations of laser technology will be discussed. During the live laser cleaning portion of the workshop a variety of cleaning results, based on the laser parameters chosen, will be demonstrated on metal and stone samples. Participants are welcome to bring their own samples for laser cleaning tests.
