Which Training 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.
Those who are new to federal historic preservation compliance or need an overview of the federal requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and the implementing regulations, “Protection of Historic Properties” (36 CFR Part 800) would benefit from the Section 106 Basics. It is well-suited to early-career cultural resources practitioners as well as managers/decision makers from federal agencies, applicants, and local government who may participate in Section 106 reviews for federal undertakings that may affect historic properties listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Section 106 Basics is a one-day overview course for early-career cultural resources practitioners as well as managers/decision makers from federal agencies, SHPOs, THPOs, Tribes/NHOs, applicants, and others. Through small group exercises and knowledge checks, a participant will apply the four-step Section 106 review process to example undertakings from your own experience, practice identifying consulting parties and planning to involve the public, describe an Area of Potential Effect, identify strategies to avoid adverse effects, and practice documenting a mitigation commitment in a sample agreement stipulation.
The Section 106 Essentials is a two-day course designed for those who are new to federal historic preservation compliance or those who want a refresher on the Section 106 regulations and review process. This course explains the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, which applies any time a federal, federally assisted, or federally approved activity might affect a property listed in or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
The Advanced Section 106 Seminar focuses on the effective management of complex or controversial undertakings that require compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. Taught in a smaller, interactive setting, this course encourages group discussion and problem solving. The seminar is designed for experienced Section 106 users who are already familiar with the regulations. The curriculum focuses on the challenges of seeking consensus and resolving adverse effects to historic properties.
