Bureau of Archaeological Research Training Overview

BAR Training

Training offered by the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research (BAR) is dynamic, changing to meet the needs of the Florida's citizens and visitors. BAR has provided the Archaeological Resource Management (ARM) training course for state land managers since 1994. As a result, BAR has trained more than 800 resource managers in the Florida Park Service, Division of Forestry, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and other public and private resource managing organizations. BAR also offers a training program for law enforcement personnel to assist in dealing with archaeological resource crimes. In the past BAR has offered courses tailored to the needs of organizations such as the Southwest Florida Water Management District permit administrators and Florida Department of Environmental Protection wetland delineators. If you have a special need for a training class please contact the training coordinator, Julie Byrd , for more information on BAR training opportunities.
