Program Vision

National Park Service (NPS) Visitor and Resource Protection (VRP) is made up of many NPS operations including: fire management, law enforcement, emergency services, commercial and special park uses, and fee management. These many facets of the VRP Directorate works to protect the safety and health of our visitors, partners, NPS Staff, and natural and cultural resources.

The NPS Career Academy for VRP partners with the NPS Associate Director for VRP to develop targeted learning solutions in the form of training and tools to close performance gaps and improve efficiencies in the career fields.
