DAHP Academy

PLEASE NOTE - All in-person trainings are cancelled for the forseeable future due to the pandemic. We are working to bringcontent to you in a virtual format. 

The Washington State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) is pleased to offer training through DAHP Academy, our in-house education program for both professionals and the general public.  At the training, our staff of professionals with expertise in archaeology, architectural history, preservation techniques and history, will focus on specific issues relating to historic preservation and the office’s various programs. While each session will focus on a particular topic in which staff will go into depth, you will also hear about the latest preservation news and learn about new office policies toward protecting Washington rich cultural resources.

All DAHP Academy trainings are free, but are limited in space due to the size of the training facility.

Upcoming Sessions 

Archaeological Reporting: 

Consulting with DAHP on projects and permits, and Archaeological Survey and Reporting. The intent of these sessions will be to provide DAHP an opportunity to present the information we need to make an informed decision on your project and/or report. It will be an excellent opportunity for those of you who may work for tribal, federal, state, or local governments, or consultants who perform work on behalf of those agencies, to hear from staff as to what the agency is looking for when reviewing projects and reports.

Historic Property - Inventory, Evaluation & Consultation

Topics to be discussed include: How to Complete a Historic Property Inventory Form; How to Evaluate Built Environment Resources for the National Register; and How to Consult with DAHP

The topics will primarily center around HPIs that are reviewed under a regulatory process (Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, Governor’s Executive Order 05-05, and SEPA). If you complete HPIs for Section 106, Governor’s Executive Order 05-05, or SEPA projects, or work for a lead agency that has submitted HPIs for DAHP review, this is a great opportunity for us all to meet and discuss expectations and the processes overall. Please be aware that this session is not relevant for EZ-2 users.

This training was presented as a webinar on June 9, 2020.  LINK TO VIDEO RECORDINGS ON YOU TUBE
