The International Committee for The Training of Personnel(ICTOP) was formally established in 1968. It is one of the International Council of Museum’s (ICOM) 51 international committees (the oldest) and part of the network.
ICTOP’s primary aim is to promote training and professional development and to establish standard/guidelines and support systems for museum personnel throughout their careers. The Committee studies and provides information on museum professional education offerings has a Facebook site ad provided other communications; it also organises an annual meeting. ICTOP also acts as an advisor for the establishment of syllabi and curriculum for museums studies/museology personnel training and works closely with other ICOM Committees to achieve its goals.
