Program for Avocational Archaeological Certification (PAAC)

The Program for Avocational Archaeological Certification (PAAC) is an educational program for avocational and professional archaeologists. Operated by the Office of the State Archaeologist of Colorado (OSAC), it allows CAS-Denver members and other citizens to obtain formally recognized levels of expertise outside of an academic degree program. 


CAS-Denver encourages all of its members to attend PAAC classes.  For more information on this program go to the PAAC program site.

A revised PAAC Program is now up and running!  


Please visit to see all of the program updates. Those who have completed PAAC class credits from the original program will receive credits earned in the revised program.

Assistant State Archaeologist, Sarah Allaun is now offering two weekend workshops on October 28th (registration deadline October 20th) and November 18th (registration deadline November 9th).  Visit for more information, to join PAAC and to register for classes.
