Grand Canyon National Park is planning to host the Federal Law Enforcement
Training Center's 40 hour Archaeological Resources Protection Training
Program at the Canyon's Albright Training Center September 15-19.
Participants will need to arrive in time to attend the beginning of the
session at 8:00 Monday moring and the class will conclude at noon on
Friday. The course tuition fee is usually around $250.  Lodging for the
session will be at the Albright Training Center (I do not know the cost for
this, but I am sure it is quite reasonable).

This is a good opportunity for archaeologists and law enforcement officers
in the Southwest to get this training if they have not already had it.
Also, anyone who attended this training prior to 1988 should take it again
as it has changed substantially since then to reflect changes in ARPA, the
advent of NAGPRA, and recent case law.  Of course, getting to spend a week
at the Canyon is not a bad side benefit either.

Federal and tribal employees interested in attending should work through
their law enforcement organizations to have their names submitted through
their agencies to FLETC.  State or local government employees interested in
attending should contact the FLETC Class Coordinator Woody Jones at
912-267-3042 or by e-mail at:  fletc-wjones@juno.com.  

I will be happy to try to answer any questions about the course by phone
(406-728-7195) or by e-mail.
