ABC Model Methodology and Software Application Training
The ABC project team conducted a two-day, 'hands-on' training session
on July 14th, 2005 at the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC).
Attendees included representatives from each Region and Washington
Office program areas as identified by the FWS Deputies. The training
covered the following topics related to the overall project implementation:
The first day of the training introduced the students to foundational
ABC concepts and basic software functionality. The second day included
an overview of the ABC model methodologies and an interactive discussion
related to the FWS ABC software model data.
The following training materials were distributed during the class and are now available:

activities, and similarly, how activities are assigned to FWS performance
goals as they relate to DOI strategic goals.
