The Asian Civilisations Museum, the National Museum and the Indian Heritage Centre have just kicked off their docent training programme in September. The next docent training programme that will start is at the Malay Heritage Centre, most likely to start in March 2019. Please keep an eye on this website to find out more. 

We are looking forward to another great year of FOM docent training!
