Now is a great time to take a fresh look at ATTTO's National Certificate in Museum Practice.

This revised edition has been developed with museum sector representatives to ensure it meets the needs of both large and small museums.

It is intended for people training towards or already employed in a museums sector career. It offers an introduction to museum practice for people new to this sector. It also provides an opportunity for specialists within museums to expand their museum practice knowledge and understanding.

The revised qualification is supported with a full range of training manuals that guide trainees through learning. Cost of manuals is included in the cost of registration into this programme through ATTTO.

The unit standards within the qualification cover essential skills and knowledge required for museum practice in New Zealand:

1. Knowledge of museum collection maintenance
2. Māori in museums
3. The purposes, functions, and responsibilities of museums in Aotearoa New Zealand
4. Scoping and proposing a public museum programme
5. Museum customer service

Electives enable trainees to choose further museum-specific standards or other relevant standards in order to develop supplementary skills required for various roles within the museum sector.

This qualification may build on skills attained through the National Certificate in Tourism and Travel (Core Skills) (Level 3) [Ref: 0876].

Registration cost including training manuals: $150 excluding assessment fees; or $200 including assessment by National Services Te Paerangi (costs excluding GST). Note that a completion grant of $80 will be paid to employers when trainees complete training within the 18 month duration.
