Training programs

Specialized knowledge and experience is required in handling cultural properties that have been damaged in a disaster. To impart this kind of knowledge, we hold training programs for the people in regional administrative departments in charge of cultural properties. We have also found it effective to provide specialized training programs for firefighters and people involved in transporting cultural properties. Finally, in an effort to share our experience and expertise with cohorts overseas, we deploy instructors to participate in international workshops and training programs for the disaster mitigation of cultural properties in other countries.
