I know that the Federal Highways guys at the Resource Center Environment Team give great Section 7 and NEPA classes. Even though they're from DOT, they can easily teach classes that are general. I work for state government so we got about 20 people together and they came to us. I don't know exactly how an individual would go about getting training, but one of the following two guys should be able to point you in the right direction.

If you've taken a course, either online or in person, and felt that it was both worthwhile and generally looked upon as favorable experience by employers I would really appreciate hearing about it. I'm especially interested in hearing from folks who work in consulting or for USFWS. I'm interested in courses that cover the general outline of the laws, as well as courses that cover the paper-work aspect. Thanks, Lee
