The program includes both residential and online courses, which are to be completed within the first two years of service as a permanent employee. The two residential courses include a weeklong course in Washington, D.C. and a two-weeklong course in Grand Canyon, Arizona, both of which require official travel and use of a government charge card. Before and between the residential courses are required online components that require the use of a computer and work time to complete. Travel is covered by the NPS Fundamentals Program.
