Terrestrial Core Methods Instructor Training

This training is directed towards state and regional core methods instructors. This training provides specialists in different regions the skills that they need to be able to host locally adapted regional core methods field courses.  Topics include a field protocol refresher, calibration, and discussion of successful training approaches. As the number of AIM monitoring efforts increase, so too do the number of BLM staff and field technicians required to collect data. It is crucial to have people from different regions qualified to host crew trainings (in conjunction with the NOC, the Jornada, and NAMC).
