2014 Online PDH Training

The ITCA Program offers FREE access to computer-based (online/internet) trainings that are ITCA-approved for renewal PDH credit. The goal of this endeavor is to make continuing professional development training more accessible to certified Tribal operators for renewal purposes, thus reducing the need for costly travel. ITCA purchased a limited number of access licenses from an online training provider to offer generalized PDH training courses during the 2014 fiscal year. These licenses will provide a certified operator with access to the online courses for a specified time period. Course durations (Professional Development Hours) vary, depending on subject and skill level being covered. Please note that training contact hours from these online training courses cannot be applied towards the 10 PDH certification-specific requirement described above. Tribal operators with ITCA-issued certification who have access to the internet are encouraged to apply for enrollment in this online continuing professional development training program. If interested, please download and submit the enrollment application form below.  For more information, please contact the TWS Program Staff at (602) 258-4822.

Legacy of ITCA

Legacy of ITCA Project
The ‘Legacy of the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona’ Project (hereinafter referred to as “Project”) is analyzing the role of ITCA in the development of national Indian policy from the critical era following World War II to the present.  The Project is exploring the role of Tribes in Arizona and ITCA in the development of federal self-determination policy and practices focusing on the perspectives of tribal leaders who founded and led the Association. The Project is also documenting the evolution of ITCA, including interviews with executive staff, identifying the goals and activities from its earliest years, as well as the strategies and tactics used by ITCA’s leadership in accomplishing collective goals over time.
