Professional development within Registered Organisations
CIfA produces a good practice guide for professional development for Registered Organisations (ROs) and others who employ archaeologists. You can find information on short courses and other training opportunities that may be useful. It includes a set of definitions to aid understanding, ideas for developing training and professional development plans for evaluating success, together with a list of resources. Our training toolkit can support early career development for archaeologists in your Registered Organisations or other business. CIfA approved employer training schemes are accepted by the Construction Skills Certification Scheme and trainees on them are eligible to apply to CSCS for a Trainee card on successful completion of the CITB Operatives level 'Health, safety and environment' test
CIfA can also endorse fieldschools and CPD courses and workshops that fit the criteria and where the learning outcomes are linked to National Occupational Standards The documents below outline the criteria for accreditation and how to link learning outcomes to National Occupational Standards.
