Demonstrate your value to your tribal employer—become certified in Tribal Property and Asset Management. Tribal organizations own millions of dollars in real and personal property. To avoid substantial losses and adverse findings on their annual audit reports, organizations need to have asset accountability, control and protective measures in place.

This certification program will provide you with all of the information that you need to establish or upgrade your property management system. You’ll learn how to handle government and personal property under self-determination contracts and other types of funding. After completing the class, you’ll take an online qualifying exam to complete your certification.
