Tier 2 is a two-day training and is both indoors and outdoor. Bring, or wear, appropriate field clothes and waterproof boots or old sneakers you can get wet! Each day will be indoors for slide shows and class exercises and river flume table demonstrations and outdoors on rivers and streams to observe in the field what we’ve seen and discussed indoors. Certificates of Completion for documenting continuing education credits are issued upon completion for renewal of professional licenses and other relevant certifications (i.e. VT Roads Scholar).
