Since participating in the FGDC's "Train the Trainer" program in February 2000, I have created a customized metadata training course called "Creating Metadata with ArcCatalog" and presently conduct at least one metadata class per month for DEP employees. Working with the NJ Office of GIS, we also offer this class to other public and private institutions where we conduct approx. 5-6 classes per year. I also participate in numerous USGS/NBII training programs and seminars whenever possible. I have been dealing with metadata related issues on a daily basis since December 1999.

Limitations: New Jersey and surrounding states.
