KIC is only the second Tribe in the nation to receive a certificate from the EPA allowing this certificated course to be taught.  EPA has expressed an interest in utilizing the SSEATeC facility for future federally required classes and continuing education for the building industry.

Ketchikan Indian Community's technical center is the 2nd education facility in Southeast Alaska certified by the EPA.  Chas Edwardson, KIC’s Workforce Development Director, will teach the course.  

A complete list of upcoming classes in early 2012 can be found on the Ketchikan Indian Community's website.  Residents are also invited to take a very short survey designed to measure their interest in existing class offerings as well as offer their suggestions for other class ideas.

SSEATeC is a training facility operated by Ketchikan Indian Community stressing relevant job training for those just joining the workforce, unemployed Alaskans and anyone wishing to improve their skills in order to advance in their chosen career path.

Anyone interested in the course can call 228-9365 or stop by SSEATeC, located at 615 Stedman Street, across from Tatsuda's IGA.
