NNAHRA and Drummond Woodsum have joined forces to take the Tribal Human Resources Professional (THRP) training virtual. This 6 session online course will provide HR Professionals in Indian Country with the practical knowledge and skills they need to handle the unique employment challenges facing tribal governments and their enterprises.
Participants will learn and apply employment laws, with a specific emphasis on protecting sovereignty. Topics will focus on issues HR Professionals grapple with every day, including discrimination, wage and hour issues, employee discipline, investigations, evaluations, leaves of absence, union activity, Indian Preference, and more. The course includes online interactive exercises to reinforce learning and help participants gain confidence in navigating complex employment issues. Participants who successfully complete the final exam receive the NNAHRA Tribal Human Resources Professional Certification. Join over 1,000 of your fellow HR Professionals who already hold the THRP certification, which is widely recognized as the essential HR credential in Indian Country.

For full event curriculum and
agenda, please download the brochure.

We are going virtual through Zoom and Canvas. 

Our engaging and interactive course material has been broken into 6 online sessions. Participants will virtually meet
with presenters and each other to learn in a collaborative and casual atmosphere.

Participants are required to have their own tablet, PC, or laptop with an internet connection. Participants will also need to be able to connect via video and audio.

In order to make this the best experience possible, attendance and participation will be very important. We are limiting the class size to 60 participants to ensure individual attention by instructors. Participants need to be committed to completing all 6 sessions before taking the online certification exam. Course materials will be mailed to participants and will be available via download.
“From all over Indian Country HR Professionals have chosen NNAHRA to provide the best possible opportunities for education. We believe that the THRP Certification Program provides the best opportunity to become trained in crucial topics, issues, laws and regulations unique to tribal organizations and enterprises. You will not find a stronger or more knowledgeable team of instructors. This program is by far the single most valuable training an HR professional should attend. Nothing will differentiate yourself from others in the HR field more than the THRP certification.”
   Suzanne Clem, NNAHRA Treasurer
