This paper investigates the current landscape of best practice curriculum frameworks for IT specialists working in digital preservation. The DigCurV curriculum framework was developed for digital preservation, but does not currently include a lens for IT specialists; the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA) 6 framework for IT specialists does not encompass digital preservation tasks. Recommendations for improving the current skill frameworks include advocating the addition of digital preservation skills to SFIA version 7 and adding a technical specialist focus to the three DigCurV lenses.
