The NOWCC BLM-ESP encourages training for enrollees whenever possible to enhance performance and increase skill levels. Training should be relevant to the enrollee's position description. All training must be approved in advance by the Technical Advisor. Technical Advisors should always check with their funding sources to make sure funds are available before committing to the training.

The Enrollee is responsible for registration but the payment will be processed by NOWCC.

Authorization & Reimbursement

A completed Training/Conference Authorization and Payment Request form is necessary when you are requesting the NOWCC BLM-ESP to:

  • pay the vendor in advance,
  • reimburse you for paying the vendor, or
  • pay the vendor invoice.

The original Training/Conference Authorization and Payment Request Form is to be sent directly to NOWCC Headquarters after being signed by your BLM Technical Advisor. Faxed copies of the form are not acceptable.

Training for which there is no charge does not require the completion of a Training/Conference Authorization and Payment Request form.

Travel with Training

When travel costs are incurred with training, please refer to the Travel section for instructions on the submission of travel expenses.
