About the course
The course will cover window history, conservation theory, inspection and diagnosis, various conservation and repair techniques, hardware and paint systems, and weatherization strategies with ample opportunity for hands-on learning.
The training is being offered on a cost-recovery basis in partnership with the Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust and with support from the Professional Development component of the Cultural Economic Development Program, Department of Tourism, Culture, Industry and Innovation. With this support we are able to offer registration at roughly 50% of actual costs (approx $1,000 per person). Lunches will be provided for the four days of training. Travel subsidies are available for participants outside the Avalon Peninsula at the following rates:
Eastern (Bonavista, Burin Peninsula, Clarenville) - $100.00

Subsidies are limited and will be allocated on a first come-first serve basis.
