The Section 106 Agreements Seminar is a one-day course that builds skills in managing consultation and documenting agreed upon steps to resolve adverse effects in a Section 106 review of a federal undertaking. The seminar is designed for cultural resources, environmental, and legal practitioners who are fluent in the Section 106 implementing regulations and the review process. The curriculum provides instruction on how to build consensus and develop agreement documents that can be successfully implemented. Several of these classes are preceded by the one-day, Section 106 Essentials class.

****For NPS Superintendents and Facility Managers, external Section 106 training does not currently meet the criteria for mandatory Section 106 training for your position, as it does not cover the NPS Programmatic Agreement. Please contact your regional Section 106 coordinator to determine which NPS-led Section 106 trainings will fulfill your mandatory training requirement.****  


Learning Objectives


Discussion and group exercises aid course participants to:

  • Determine when consulting parties are ready to begin drafting a Section 106 Agreement,
  • Distinguish whether a Section 106 Memorandum of Agreement or Programmatic Agreement is best suited to your needs,
  • Document avoidance, minimization, and mitigation measures as clear, implementable agreement stipulations, and
  • Determine when enough consultation has occurred to begin signing the Section 106 Agreement.
  • All courses are taught by ACHP staff with expertise and practical experience in managing Section 106 cases and developing agreement documents.




This course is for cultural resources, environmental, and legal practitioners and project managers/decision makers with current experience participating in Section 106 reviews. Participants should have a working knowledge of the four steps within the Section 106 review process. Those without such knowledge or experience are encouraged to take an introductory course, such as the NEW Section 106 Essentials or other similar course, prior to this course. Participants may register for the Section 106 Practitioner Workshop and this course in the same week.
