Indigenous students in California interested in forestry, natural resource management, and  emergency and environmental response and recovery industries can look to two new opportunities offered by the California Tribal Unilateral Apprenticeship Program.

The California Tribal Unilateral Apprenticeship Program is offering students a postsecondary study or the opportunity to work towards their Associates Degree through the Environmental Science & Protection Technician Apprenticeship Program. 

The specific program focuses on Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and additional safety and training certifications related to natural disaster management, general forestry training, and cultural awareness, according to the organization’s website. Additional classes in archeology, American Indian Studies, and Indian Law—with specificity to the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act—will be offered.
