A special commission has been set up at the Ministry of Culture to assess those wishing to be included in the register of masters.
The members of the commission are Tariel Kiparoidze (architect-restorer) Merab Bochoidze (architect-restorer), Gogotur Mirsiashvili (Architect-Restorer), Nikoloz Zazunishvili (Architect-Restorer), Nodar Mindorashvili (Architect-Restorer) Spartak Jvaridze (Works Manufacturer, Restorer), Giorgi Tsitsishvili (architect), Davit Jincharadze (architect), and Lasha Shartava (architect).
After an interview with this commission, candidates will have a chance to be placed on the Master’s register and get a job at the National Agency for Cultural Heritage or take pre-employment qualification courses.
The deadline for applications for registration in the register of masters is June 15. Interviews with candidates will start next week.
The Ministry says that the need to create a register of masters was caused by the problems in the field of cultural heritage in the country. In many cases, problems with cultural heritage sites are caused by a shortage of qualified staff or a lack of professionalism on the part of existing staff.
