I. Abstract

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training 
Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, provides natural 
resource and other professional training for Service employees, 
employees of other Federal agencies, and other affiliations, including 
State agencies, private individuals, not-for-profit organizations, and 
university personnel. FWS Form 3-2193 (Training Application) is a quick 
and easy method for prospective students who are not from the 
Department of the Interior to request training. We encourage applicants 
to use FWS Form 3-2193 and to submit their requests electronically. 
However, we do not require applicants to complete both a training form 
required by their agency and FWS Form 3-2193. NCTC will accept any 
single training request as long as each submission identifies the name, 
address, and phone number of the applicant, sponsoring agency, class 
name, start date, and all required financial payment information.
    NCTC uses data from the form to generate class rosters, class 
transcripts, and statistics, and as a budgeting tool for projecting 
training requirements. It is also used to track attendance, mandatory 
requirements, tuition, and invoicing for all NCTC-sponsored courses 
both onsite and offsite.
