The curriculum provides instruction on how to build consensus and develop agreement documents that can be successfully implemented. Discussion and group exercises aid course participants to:

In our digital classroom, we will replicate our interactive classroom experience using Zoomgov (a FedRAMP compliant application), and continue to foster live (and lively) discussion with poll questions and small group exercises. To participate in the class, you will need to use a computer or tablet device with a webcam, speakers, audio, and with the downloaded and installed Zoom 5.0 (or later) app. Please ensure that you will have access to appropriate equipment and the Zoom app prior to registering for the course.

 

****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.****
