Teslin Tlingit Council (TTC) encourages and supports Citizens to identify and reach their career ambitions. Courses are offered for TTC Citizens and employees to help expand the skills required in their current job or develop skills for new job opportunities.
Department staff work closely with the Yukon Mine Training Association (YMTA) and Yukon Government to coordinate training programs. With YMTA, TTC co-sponsors Citizens in Heavy Equipment Operations and welding training. The Department also works closely with the Yukon College’s Presidents Advisory Committee on First Nations Initiatives (PACFNI), and an increasing number of distance programs are being offered. These include, First Nation Governance and Public Administration, Heritage and Culture, and the Northern Institute of Social Justice programs.
Training is offered through the Assets Agreement through Human Resources Services Canada (AAHRSC). Each year this includes First Aid, Road Flagging and Resume Writing courses, based on budget availability.
