The RIAI are pleased to announce that the biennial RIAI Conservation Induction Module Grade 3 will take place in May 2017. The Course is for RIAI Registered Architects only.

New sessions for 2017 include a guided site visit to a property on Henrietta Street  and a guided tour of the facilities available at the Irish Architectural Archive, in addition to the popular demonstration on the mixing and application of lime render and in-classroom lectures from a wide range of conservation experts.

RIAI Registered Architects who successfully complete the Conservation Induction Module Assessment Exercise are eligible to apply for 'Architect Accredited in Conservation at Grade 3'. 

Course Objective:

The aim of the Module is to provide participants with an introduction to the principles and practice of architectural conservation. Participants should finish the course with enough awareness of the concepts and of the tools available to form the basis for a responsible approach to work on protected structures and on our architectural heritage in general.

CPD Point Breakdown:

Phase 1 Home Study             30 Unstructured
Phase 2 Lectures                   30 Structured
Phase 3 Assessment             40 Structured
Associated Study                   30 Unstructured

Course Format:
The Module will be structured in three phases

Phase 1: The Document Pack
A Conservation Documents Pack will be distributed in early April 2017. Participants will be expected to read and familiarise themselves with the contents of the documents in the pack before Phase 2 begins.

Phase 2: Lecture Sessions
This Phase will be scheduled for six days over two weeks consisting of in-classroom seminars and discussions, a guided site visit to a protected structure, live lime demonstrations and  a guided tour of the Irish Architectural Archive. 

Phase 3: Assessment
The assessment will consist of one exercise involving both factual and scenario-based questions. The exercise, which will be ‘open-book’ format, will be issued to participants for completion within a given time frame but at a location (home, office . . .) of their own choosing. 

The Assessment Exercise will be issued in early June 2017 to be returned in early July 2017.
