Information technology training opportunities from MIS

In the past Management Information Systems (MIS) has offered to tribal members the technology classes MIS offers tribal employees. This fall we are offering the classes, many of which apply to the very specific technologies the Permanent Fund uses. However, we are also offering one-on-one training for tribal members to talk with MIS staff on whatever topic the tribal member wants to learn about whether it is how to use their home computer better, how to use a specific computer application, how to buy a phone or other topics. We assume these sessions will run from 30 minutes to an hour. Information on how to sign up is below in our class schedule.

Along with one-on-one sessions, MIS is offering classes on various tools and topics from August through October.
