By-Request and Tailored Courses

The ACHP offers two approaches to meet the Section 106 training needs of federal, state, tribal, and local agencies and other organizations:

  • By-request courses: The Section 106 Basics can be scheduled at a location and time convenient to the course sponsor. Course content, materials, and classroom experience are the same as our open-enrollment courses with the ease of using your facility. By-request courses offer cost savings for larger groups (18 or more) and can avoid or reduce travel expenditures. Webinars can also be scheduled by request at a cost savings for 12 or more log-ins.

  • Tailored courses: The ACHP staff develops classroom training ranging from a half day to multiple days based on an organization’s individual needs. We can also develop webinars or e-Learning products by request. Content, exercises, reference materials, and delivery methods can be designed to meet specific goals the organization has for improving federal historic preservation review and compliance programs. 

E-mail us at training@achp.gov to request our assistance in meeting your Section 106 training needs and objectives.
