The Getty Conservation Institute is collaborating with the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) to develop training in risk assessment, emergency planning, preparedness, and response within the framework of the Museum Emergency Program, an initiative of the International Council of Museums (ICOM).

The GCI-ICCROM collaboration will focus initially on creating a curriculum for a pilot training course and on developing teaching strategies and didactic resources. The training model developed through the GCI-ICCROM collaboration will eventually be incorporated into a broader program of courses taught regionally around the globe as part of the Museum Emergency Program's efforts to provide training and support to museum personnel implementing emergency preparedness procedures.

Additional information about the educational work of the Museum Emergency Program will appear in an upcoming issue of Conservation.
