The following is one of my periodic ARPA training announcements:

The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) will offer its 40 hour Archeological 
Resources Protection Training Program (ARPTP) at Tucson, AZ, Dec. 8-12, beginning Monday 
the 8th at 8:00 AM and ending Friday the 12th by noon.  The class will be hosted by the 
National Park Service at the Western Archeological and Conservation Center (WACC).  The 
class is open to law enforcement officers, archaeologists, and specialists in related 
fields (e.g. historians, curators, etc.) who work for federal, tribal, state, or local 
government agencies.  The tuition fee depends on class size, but is normally $250 or 
less.  Agencies must pay for travel and per diem costs. Those intereted in attending 
should use the following procedures.  Federal employees should apply through their law 
enforcement organizations who will submit their names to FLETC.  Tribal employees also 
should apply through their law enforcement organizations who will submit their names 
throught the Indian Police Academy to FLETC.  State and local emplyees should contact 
the Course Coordinator Woody Jones at FLETC.  His telephone number at FLETC in Glynco, 
Georgia is 912-267-3042.

This offering of ARPTP will be a good one.  WACC houses the collections from many 
western National Parks and participants will have an opportunity to see these 
collections.  There will also be a field trip to a large Hohokam site on the south side 
of Tucson which is being actively looted.  In addition, WACC is located in the vicinity 
of the U of A campus and the Arizona State Museum so participants can visit the campus 
and the museum.  Of course, Tucson also has many other attractions such as the Sonoran 
Desert Museum and Saguaro National Monument.
