Why choose the ACHP for Section 106 training?
Up-to-the-minute regulatory knowledge
Information on current guidance, policy, and best practices comes straight from the agency with oversight responsibility for Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and nationwide experience in managing the review process.
All ACHP courses are taught by experienced staff members who assist a wide range of stakeholders in navigating the review process in their daily work. Past participants give ACHP instructors high marks for being knowledgeable and receptive to questions.
Tools for practical application
Our approach to Section 106 training includes case studies and exercises that allow participants to practice application of regulatory information to real-world scenarios. All classroom courses provide a handbook and CD with additional sample documents, guidance, and reference materials.
What past participants are saying:
- “Best Section 106 course I have had to date.”
- “This was a very informative and well-designed course; it was clear that the instructors were very passionate about this topic….”
- “I’m leaving this training with a wealth of knowledge and a sigh of relief knowing that I can embark on a Section 106 review without fear or hesitation.”
Which course is right for you?
We are often asked which of our courses is most suitable given a student's familiarity with the Section 106 process. The following considerations can help you select a course that best meets your needs.
I am new to Section 106. The Section 106 Basics course is designed for you. Whether its your new full-time job, a process you'll participate in on an occasional to frequent basis, or just a keen interest to you, the one-day Basics course will outline the process, define terms, and help calibrate expectations for timelines and outcomes.
I lead or participate in Section 106 reviews frequently or all-day-every-day. The Section 106 Essentials provides the detailed walk through of the Section 106 process that you're looking for with opportunities to apply key concepts in small group exercises.
I routinely lead or participate in Section 106 reviews of complex, controversial undertakings. If you have been professionally involved in Section 106 reviews a while and/or have taken the ACHP's Section 106 Essentials course (or similar), the Advanced Section 106 Seminar may be your best fit. The discussion-based one-day course revisits key principles of Section 106 review highlighting best practices to manage Section 106 consultation with a large number of parties and builds skills in identifying and development more creative mitigation solutions and documenting outcomes in Section 106 agreements.
