Summary

Between 2009 and 2012, UNESCO developed a foundation course for the management of underwater cultural heritage followed by advanced courses - all for the Asia-Pacific Region and aimed at professionals working for governmental organisations. Three foundation courses and two advanced courses were given in Thailand. In total 70 people were trained from 17 different countries. This huge success resulted in a few spin off effects in the region such as a platform of professionals from several countries now consulting each other and working together. The foundation course that has been developed has been tested during the three courses held over 6 weeks. This has also resulted in a printed version of the curriculum. UNESCO sees this curriculum as a standard for its maritime courses throughout the world. This paper will present the courses held and the curriculum written.
