Welcome to the Smithsonian-Mason School of Conservation Training Course Application System

This site allows you to create a participant profile, apply for training courses, and track the status of your application. When we need additional information from you, you’ll be automatically alerted to return here and complete the necessary steps. Before applying for any course, please do review all the course-specific information on our website (smconservation.gmu.edu). An updated list of courses open for application can be found HERE. If this is your first time to this site, the first step is to create a Participant Profile by using the “Create Profile” button above.
