The Preservation and Skills Training (PAST) Program trains NPS maintenance employees in the proper preservation, care, and maintenance of our historic assets within the National Park System. This program teaches participants how to view, approach and apply maintenance work on historic assets using proper preservation techniques.
Who can apply?
The PAST program is open to permanent, full-time, field-based maintenance employees in the National Park Service. Preference will be given to permanent employees, but employees in term positions are welcome to apply. You do not need to have a background in preservation to participate in the program, just a desire to learn.
