While SHPO's Review and Compliance staff are pleased to offer workshops, mini-boot camps, or even talk applicants through the process via conference call or meetings, there are a tremendous number of formal and informal, fee-based and/or cost-free, training opportunities available from a number of different agencies who specialize in such training programs.
Several national organizations regularly offer valuable training ranging from hour-long webinars, to day-long and/or multi-day workshops. Available training covers a broad swath of topics, and may be resource-specific (e.g., cultural landscapes, TCPs, bridges, mid-20th century resources, etc.), skill-specific (e.g., digital photography, cemetery marker care and maintenance, repairing historic windows), law-specific, and are geared to differing levels of expertise. To explore the range of training opportunities available nationally, one should consult the websites of the following organizations:
- the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP);
- the National Preservation Institute (NPI),
- the National Park Service (NPS)--through their Technical Preservation Services,Cultural Resources (esp. National Register and National Historic Landmarks Programs, and the National Center for Preservation, Technology, and Training;and

On the local scene, both the Nevada Preservation Foundation and the California Preservation Foundation regularly host webinars, talks, and other informative events that may be of interest to applicants, consultants, and a range of individuals involved directly and/or tangentially in compliance.
