You will learn what NEPA is, when the NEPA requirements apply to projects, the roles and responsibilities of FTA staff and project sponsors within the context of NEPA, about the three different NEPA classes of action, how to determine when each class of action applies, and the different environmental review, documentation, and public involvement requirements for each.
