Section 106 Essentials Training

Special Offer to Students of NCPE Member Institutions

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) is offering two discount programs to students from National Council for Preservation Education member institutions.

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.

What will you learn in The Section 106 Essentials?

  •   Information on the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the Section 106 process;
  •   Real-life case studies to illustrate each step in the ACHP’s regulations, “Protection of Historic Properties”(36 CFR Part 800);
  •   Practical advice on how to make Section 106 work smarter and more efficiently to resolve conflicts between development plans and historic preservation values; and
  •   A revised curriculum handbook and a course CD, featuring model documents, guidance materials, and a reference library.
