The Pathway is designed to be a membership category in which members are able to verify that they are practicing conservators who are actively working towards accreditation, as such members must submit evidence on an annual basis.
This check takes the form of an annual review in January each year. There are three options that members can choose from, each of which has been designed to directly support the member in becoming Accredited, either focusing on an element in the Accreditation application form, or a self-assessment to help them ensure they're ready to apply for accreditation.
