WAFWA western association of fish and wildlife agencies

Upon successful completion of the Human Dimensions Training Program, participants are awarded HD certification by the Human Dimensions Committee of WAFWA.

The HD Training program is intended to benefit current wildlife professionals, and is currently designed to target two general types of employees:

1. HD Specialists or Technicians Assigned to HD Tasks

These employees, while they may already have a certain amount of HD training and experience, would have an opportunity to advance their HD expertise and assume HD leadership within the agency. The program is designed primarily to target these individuals, who would attend all 4 weeks of on-site training. A total of up to 30 employees will be able to enroll in the full 4-week training program.

2. Mid- to Upper-Level Managers.

These employees, while not directly involved in HD applications, may benefit from learning more about the fundamentals of HD and its utility.  It is not expected that these employees would attend all 4 weeks.
