You’ll learn how the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is implemented, the criteria that are used to protect species, and the number and distribution of protected species. We will explain what is considered “take” and how project components can get authorized (Federal Agency Consultations) or permitted (Habitat Conservation Plans) to “take” a listed species.

You’ll learn how to manage the tight construction schedules and project demands that can make the air permitting process stressful. After you receive the green light for construction, you can breathe a quick sigh of relief, but don’t forget your air obligations don’t end after you obtain a permit. This course will review on-going air compliance requirements such as permit terms, off-permit compliance standards and annual reporting and will give some pointers and best management practices for complying with those requirements and surviving enforcement inspections.
