Formed in 1950 at the inaugural meeting of ICOM, the Comité International pour la Documentation (CIDOC) has a long tradition of offering training workshops and seminars. CIDOC's membership is truly international – a community of documentation specialists from more than 70 countries. This collective expertise and experience puts CIDOC in a unique position to provide training in museum documentation in a wide range of languages.
