Chemistry for Conservators 2017

Tutor: Velson Horie

This correspondence course provides an introduction for people with little (for instance lower school chemistry studied years ago) or no chemistry. The course provides an excellent background to many training courses in conservation; indeed several conservation training establishments recommend this course to potential students with an insufficient chemistry background. Taking this course should enable students to gain greater insight into their everyday work.
