In this AIA approved architect continuing education training course we discuss the fact that the Secretary of the Interior is responsible for establishing professional standards on the preservation and protection of all cultural resources listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, apply to all proposed development grant-in-aid projects assisted through the National Historic Preservation Fund, and are intended to be applied to a wide variety of resource types, including buildings, sites, structures, objects, and districts. Those standards, and therefore this architect continuing education course discusses four treatments: Preservation, Rehabilitation, Restoration, and Reconstruction. This online training course is approved by the American Institute of Architects for 11 HSW continuing education credits, aka health, safety, and welfare learning units.
