CAP Assessors

As an Approved Assessor for the CAP Program, you have the opportunity to help small institutions grow in their professional capacity. Your service to the field through the CAP Program helps to improve our nation’s small museums.

  • professional training in conservation, zoology, botany or horticulture, architectural conservation/preservation, architecture, landscape architecture, or engineering
  • at least five years of professional experience in preservation, conservation, or collections care in one of the above fields
