2. The potential to provide a knowledge based service to their community museum while enhancing their own skill level
3. The acknowledgment of their achievements by using recognizable standards through a Certificate Program.
The overall purpose to the advanced targeted training to give our members an opportunity to focus their studies on a topic of interest. Such topics include:
1. Collections Management
2. Archival Management
3. Exhibit Development
5. Conservation and Preservation
6. Interpretation and Education
7. Customer Service / Public Relations

For example, a member may wish to write or rewrite a collections policy document or a disaster plan for their sites. This advanced targeted training course allows a participant to focus on the creation of that collection policy or disaster plan.
Each course will be developed to meet the individual needs and interests of each student / member. The member and the CMAPEI staff will work out the course goals together. The delivery method will be a combination of distance education, directed readings and regular mentoring sessions.
The CMAPEI staff will develop individualized curriculum, choose appropriate readings and resources, set evaluation procedures and choose an appropriate mentor. Both Student / member and CMAPEI staff will work out an appropriate project and / or thesis for the achievement of the Advanced Level II or III Certificate.
The fee for this advanced level II and III course is $ 100.00 for members
