Registration Opens for Chapter 102 Basic Technical Training

Conservation district technicians are encouraged to attend this year’s Chapter 102 Basic Technical Training as a refresher course. The event will take place May 23-26, 2023, at the Red Lion Harrisburg Hershey in Harrisburg, PA.

There is no cot to register, most meals are provided, and a lodging reimbursement is available. (See registration page for additional details.) There is no virtual attendance option.

Attendance is open to conservation district technicians and DEP employees working with Chapter 102 who are new or relatively new to their position, have never taken a similar training, would like a refresher, or would like guidance and skill enhancement for field inspections. The course curriculum assumes all participants have completed the prerequisite coursework on the Clean Water Academy.
