Anyone in the western U.S. wishing to attend the Federal Law Enforcement

Training Center's 40 hour Archeological Resources Protection Training

Program in the near future should consider the session to be held in

Kona, Hawaii, March 24-28.  Here are a couple of facts about the session to

point out to skeptical fiscal personnel.  First, airfares are comparable to

traveling to other locations in the U.S. from the West (round trip

excursion fares in the $800 to $900 range or less, depending on location).  

Second, the hotel where the training will be held, the Kona Surf Resort, is

offering a rate of $60.00 per night, single or double occupancy, to training

participants.  This rate would be hard to beat in any major city.  From a

cost standpoint, the Hawaii class is comparable to any offering of the

class unless you are able to attend one in your immediate area which you could

drive to.  Also of interest is that the class will emphasize not only

ARPA, but also NAGPRA related protection issues given Native Hawaiian interest

in this area.  For futher information about the class, contact Woody Jones

at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Georgia
