Advanced NEPA-An Intensive One-Day Seminar With Solutions to the Most Difficult NEPA Problems
POL-500
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

You’ve been to training on the basics, the fundamentals, the essentials, the step-by-step. You’ve been to refreshers and updates. It’s time to take the National Environmental Policy Act to the next level – Advanced NEPA.

NEPA is often criticized for costing too much, taking too long, and accomplishing too little. If you have any role in the NEPA process, you have a stake in the answers discussed in this seminar.

You are encouraged to bring your own questions for discussion and resolution. This is a seminar format with significant time reserved for discussion rather than lecture. Handout materials are substantial and based on statutes, regulations, and case law rather than on opinion or past practice.

Expect a fast-paced day. During this seminar the questions that do not arise in the basic courses will be asked and answered – questions related to the categorical exclusion, the environmental assessment, the finding of no significant impact, and the environmental impact statement.

Intended Audience:

Since this is an advanced course, it will be assumed that attendees will know the vocabulary, the acronyms, and the basic NEPA process. Attendees should be at least vaguely familiar with the statute, the regulations, and the guidance memoranda. Attendees should have substantial experience in the preparation of NEPA documents, their approval, or litigation over their adequacy. Project managers, senior environmental professionals, seasoned NEPA practitioners, writers and editors, legal counsel, and decision makers themselves will get the most out of this seminar.

** This course is designed to be attended AFTER our 2-day presentation of "National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA): Writing the Perfect EA/FONSI, or EIS". We recommend registering for that course prior to registering for this workshop. When registering for both courses together, there is a $50 discount. ** 

Registration: Early bird rate $595 / $545*, $645 / $595* thereafter. *Reduced tuition available to employees of Native American tribes, nonprofits, and government agencies; students; and NAEP members
