Online training in watershed management.

The Watershed Academy Web is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Web site that offers self-paced training modules that serve as a "basic but broad introduction to watershed management."

The modules are organized into six themes:

* Introductory/Overview

* Watershed Ecology

* Watershed Change

* Analysis and Planning

* Management Practices

* Community/Social/Water Law

According to the EPA, the national demand for watershed training exceeds its availability, and the agency's live classes are consistently overfilled. Through the Internet academy, the EPA hopes to be able to bring the training to many more people.

The modules take about one-half hour to two hours to complete, and most are at the college freshman level of instruction. Completion of a series of 15 modules earns the Watershed Academy Web Training Certificate.
