The course aims to train professionals that will be able to access the conservator-restorer profession in accordance with international standards and recommendations in Conservation, in particular the European Network for Teaching Conservation and Restoration (Encore), which has IPT as a member, and the European Confederation of Conservative-Restorers Organisations (ECCO). In order to accomplish this, the course is closely related with the Bachelor's Degree in Conservation and Restoration, so the two together provide the five years training, which is indispensable for access the profession. In a more specific way, the course aims to develop and deepen the knowledge acquired in the Bachelor degree and, moreover, develop skills to, in a creative, critical, independent and interdisciplinary way, design, plan and integrate products and conservation and restoration processes, according to the standards and international best practices.
