I hope you are having a great summer. I look forward to assisting Tribal members helping with Education, Employment and other opportunities.

Props to all of you who are continuing with your education. Please be aware that Antoinette Cavanaugh has retired from her position assisting people interested in enrolling in the MTC (Maintenance Training Cooperative) Program at Great Basin College. The technology courses and academic programs still exists but, it is not known yet if the assistance that Mrs. Cavanaugh provided to Native American Students for funding, housing, resumes, applications etc. will continue, marshalled by another person employed by Barrick Mines. Thank you, Antoinette.
The GED program at the Computer Center will start registration on August 20th. The schedule of classes will be Tuesday, Wednesday the Thursday at 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. It is at no cost and if you don’t have a High School diploma or equivalent yet, it would be of benefit for you, to do so now.
Please don’t forget to renew TERO applications for 2019. If you cannot sign in physically here at THQ, call the TERO office. People on IGA also need to sign or call in on a weekly basis. Those people on IGA need to make sure their TERO applications are current for this year, also.
The following are worth repeating, from previous reporting. There are certain minimum qualifications that many employers require whether they are Tribal Programs, working for private industry or local, state or the federal government etc. These are having a Driver’s license and High school diploma or equivalent. For Tribal members, it is recommended that they have a Tribal ID card.
The use of the computer is an excellent resource for those who need a regular Class D Operator’s License or CDL. For an Idaho Driver’s License, go to the Idaho Transportation Department’s website for practice tests or/ and an electronic license manual that can be downloaded. For a Nevada Driver’s license, go to Nevadadriverslicense.org to access the practice tests and license manual. The local computer center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The GED program classes that are held in the Fall and Spring are also located in that building.
For those people who need a Tribal ID, see Enrollment specialist Laura Hull at the Resource Building at the Tribal Headquarters. Her phone number there is (208) 759-3100 extension 1222.
Please contact me, TERO Director John Crum at (208) 759-3100 extension 1234 if you have questions or drop by the office located at the Resource building at Tribal Headquarters.
