The Historic Preservation Specialist job family consists of three levels which are distinguished on the basis of the responsibility and complexity of work, experience required and the responsibility assigned for the development and coordination of assigned programs.

Positions in the Oklahoma Historical Society require specialized training and experience as specified by the U.S. Department of the Interior.
At least one professionally qualified incumbent in each of the disciplines of archeology, architectural history, architecture, and history must be included on the State Historical Preservation Office staff to maintain program certification.  The Oklahoma Historical Society will specify the discipline in which candidates for employment must be qualified.
