I. Abstract

    The Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center 
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 non-Department of the Interior students 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 on- and off-site.
