Training Class Registration

In order to register for a class, USGS personnel should login to DOI Learn and search (ADCP or ADVM) the course catalog, choose your class date, submit your request, have your supervisor approve, and wait to hear from the instructor after registration closes. Direct links in the table below may be used to register for specific classes after logging in to DOI Learn.

USGS Cooperators may register for a class by completing the non-USGS Course Application form, which can be found at the following link: Cooperators will need to provide correspondence from the local USGS Water Science Center stating that you are a cooperator and why it is in the USGS interest for you to attend the class. Please note, USGS students will be given priority if enrollment exceeds class capacity.

Classes are setup in DOI Learn with an initial roster maximum of 16 students. If a class you wish to attend is listed as full, please continue with your registration. Additional students that register, after the first 16, will be placed on a wait list. After registration closes, class roster will be finalized. Typically final class size will be between 18 and 24 students. Some of the students initially placed on the wait list will make the final roster. Do NOT make any travel arrangements until you are notified by the lead instructor of your acceptance after registration closes.

The cost for each course is $1,300. A cancellation fee of 75% of the tuition will be assessed if a student cancels after the class roster is finalized.
