Welcome to the Horace M. Albright Training Center! Originally established in 1957 at Yosemite National Park, the training center moved to its current location in Grand Canyon National Park six years later.

As one of the primary training facilities of the National Park Service, Albright Training Canter is a part of a team dedicated to NPS employee training and development. We hope that after attending a training course here, you will feel a part of our team as well.

The nine-acre campus is within a mile stroll of the Grand Canyon's South Rim. It's an amazing environment for employees to learn about the NPS and its mission, this unit of the National Park System, and themselves.

From the staff of
Horace M. Albright Training Center

The Center is named after Horace M. Albright, the second director of the National Park Service. Albright created a vision of agency ideals to accomplish the NPS mission,
planting the seeds for future preservation and public service. He spent seventeen years with the NPS, leaving a legacy of devotion, service expansion and preservation.


The training center completed renovations in 2006 that upgraded technology, 

energy efficiency, classroom capability, and reconstruction of student residences. Nearly half a century after the ribbon was first cut, the Albright Training Center

continues the tradition of preparing a dedicated, effective National Park Service

workforce for the future.
