What Our Participants Have to Say

I believe that a tribe's strength of financial systems is dependent on an educated workforce. 

This program is packed with carefully curated, relevant content that varies from the history on Indian law and policy to recent changes in compliance requirements. I recommend it for all levels of financial managers, and especially for those who are new to their jobs or those who want to gain greater knowledge that will advance their ability to help their people and their career. 

This training is a taught by notable subject matter experts in Indian Country, and is an excellent opportunity to build both a professional and a peer network.

The AIPI/NAFOA Tribal Financial Manager Certificate program is tribal-government-specific training that deepens the legal and financial knowledge of tribal financial managers and serves to build their capacity to better manage tribal assets and resources.

The certification program gives a thorough review of financial standards and concepts that impact tribal government entities. I would highly recommend as a means to strengthening your tribal government’s financial position.
