Message from NCTC Director:

Welcome to the January 2022 National Conservation Training Center Website. Happy New Year!

We had hoped to begin opening the campus for staff in early January, and for training in late January.  Unfortunately, the Omicron variant had different plans. We have once again put off our opening until later in February to ensure the health and safety of our staff and students.  


For questions related to a specific course, please contact the course contact listed on our website under the related course description page. To see all of the courses NCTC has to offer, go to our Course Guide. Any questions on course offerings can be directed to nctc_training@fws.gov.
