Message from NCTC Director:

Welcome to the September 2021 National Conservation Training Center Website.  We continue to monitor the impacts of the Delta Variant of the COVID-19 virus, and I recently made the decision to delay opening our campus until November 2021.  Watch this space for more info as things evolve. 

This website provides a comprehensive look at the National Conservation Training Center--who we are, what we do, and how you can take advantage of our superb training programs.  September has a wide variety of online offerings, Forests for the Birds: Forestry for the Birds; Tribal Broadcast Series: Developing Land Acknowledgements; Building Better Maps (with ArcGIS Pro); Planning for a Changing Climate – Online; and many more. Click on the NCTC Course Guide to find pathways for your career.   

COVID-19 is still a big issue for all of us--stay safe.  I will see you back to NCTC soon! 

Steve Chase--Director NCTC
