300–level courses

300–level courses provide more advanced administrative, technical, policy and regulatory training. These courses focus on "real–world" situations that tribal reservation programs may face in implementing water quality programs under the CWA in every–day situations. These courses provide the degree of training that tribes will require to develop, manage and administer sophisticated water quality programs. The 100– and 200–level courses are a recommended pre-requisite to the 300–level courses.
