The ACPF National Hub has two upcoming trainings for individuals interested is running ACPF and using the outputs!
Virtual ACPF Technical Training
The ACPF National Hub is pleased to announce a free cohort style ACPF Technical Training scheduled for Fall 2022.
Hosted by ACPF technical experts, this free course will teach participants how to download the ACPF toolbox and the base data and run the terrain analysis tools on a sample watershed. Learners will work through the online ACPF training in a small group, practice running the tools, and troubleshoot issues with peers and instructors. The course will also provide information on available ACPF support and customizing the ACPF tools for use in your watershed.
The course is 6 weeks in length and will run from September 12th to October 24th. Each week participants will complete activities using the online self-paced ACPF training using a sample watershed and participate in a 2-hour virtual session with instructors on each Thursday to review their work, troubleshoot issues, and discuss next steps.
Unfortunately, this class is full. Please sign up to be the first to know about our next training. By signing up you will be the first to know when we host another training in early 2023.
The Watershed Applications of ACPF – A Three-part Virtual Training
The ACPF National Hub is pleased to announce a free virtual ACPF Watershed Applications Training scheduled for Fall 2022.
The Watershed Applications course is a free training designed for non-GIS users at the federal, state, and local level who want to use ACPF results in their watershed planning or practice implementation processes. This session will focus on Ohio and the Western Lake Erie Basin but participants from all regions are welcome to join as many of the concepts and themes will be broadly applicable. This workshop will give an overview of what goes into the process when a GIS Specialist runs the ACPF, review case examples of the different ways ACPF has been used in a watershed planning context and give tips and tricks for displaying and sharing ACPF results and using the ACPF to engage partners.
Class will be held virtually 10am-12pm (Eastern) over three days September 20, 22, and 27. No GIS experience is required.
The training will NOT teach you how to run the ACPF in ArcGIS. Instead, it will cover how to use the ACPF outputs in watershed planning. Individuals attending this workshop need no GIS experience, however, access to colleagues or partners with GIS expertise is needed to ensure someone can run the ACPF for your watershed.
