Fundamentals Class Dates, plus lodging and per diem changes!

NPS Fundamentals Logistics Coordinator

Updated NPS Fundamentals

An update to know! In an effort to meet operational cost, and provide improved services to guests, Albright Training Center has increased lodging and per diem rates.

NPS Fundamentals Residential participants should now claim $80/night lodging and $66 M&IE daily.

Concur Travel System (CGE) has removed the Albright Training Center location. Travelers must choose the Grand Canyon location on their travel authorization and subsequent voucher. Participants will need to correct lodging rates on their authorization and voucher to the new Albright Training Center rate of $80 per night.

Funds collected through lodging charges remain at the training center for cost recovery, operational funding, and maintenance to the apartments. The rate increase will help us narrow the gap between the cost of operations and expenditures. This increase will also enable staff to continue to provide excellent lodging and customer service for those staying and training at our facility.

The National Park Service Fundamentals Residential program is a great way to learn more about the organization, explore current issues, network with your peers, and form a strong foundation for your career.

More information on class dates and how to apply can be found on the Fundamentals website.
