Welcome to our Continuing Education program
for natural resource professionals. The workshops and learning
materials are sponsored by a wide variety of groups, from the
Forest Service, other federal agencies, and Universities to private
vendors. Most workshop is offered annually (pending adequate
participation), integrating current philosophies, techniques and
learning methods. A number of the workshops alternate locations
providing varied travel options. Some of the workshops travel
to other areas, pending interest and demand.
Participants are from diverse disciplines, other natural resource
agencies, and private organizations are encouraged to attend
2016/2017 (FY17) Workshop Registration is available in AgLearn!
Non-FS Participants - contact the vendor directly
You must REGISTER/Request in AgLearn and fill out the SF182 to attend training.
Registering and filling out the SF182 are 2 different actions. Filling out the SF182 does NOT automatically register you for training and vice versa - registering/requesting doesn't automatically fill out your SF182. AgLearn isn't that sophiticated yet.
If you have unit funding you can register anytime.
Contact your Regional Coordinator if your region provides funding ...
NOTE: Not all vendors and training are scheduled in AgLearn. If you have training you want listed/scheduled, please let me know.
We are in AgLearn! If you are unit funded, check out our "Register in AgLearn" page for advice on using AgLearn. Then register! Problems registering in AgLearn?

Dropping from Workshops: Once registered you are considered confirmed. Workshops are coordinated based on the minimum number of registered participants. If you are registered and decide to drop, check with us first, just in case we have a waiting list. If there is not a waiting list,
you will need to find a substitute or pay fixed costs. The
budget has been set and spent based on current confirmation. Workshops
might be cancelled due to overall low participant registration.
In the case of a workshop being cancelled, registered participants
won't be charged (obviously). Thank you for your understanding
Accessibility: If you have special needs, such as sign language interpreters, please let the vendor know as soon as you register. We want to provide the very best quality experience and learning.
