The National Native American Human Resources Association’s (NNAHRA) Foundation is thrilled to introduce two new programs to its certification offerings: Tribal Adjudication Professional (TAP) and Tribal Management Professional (TMP) Certification for all tribal leadership and HR professionals.

NNAHRA’s main priority is to provide timely and trusted information and resources to those serving and leading Tribal government and enterprises in areas of people management, employment policy development and capacity building across Indian Country.​
They also provide advocacy, research and education in the name of Indian Country Human Resources to protect and honour tribal sovereignty and jurisdiction through meaningful employment practices.​ So, these immersive training programs are designed to enhance participants’ managerial skills and capabilities in a culturally sensitive and contextually relevant manner.
“These programs are a game changer within our community,” said Tal Moore, NNAHRA Foundation Director. “Both new and experienced leaders can take these programs to get their certificates and learn the essential skills for success in Native American governments and enterprises.”
NNAHRA has partnered with Michele Justice, President of Personnel Security Consultants, in the development and facilitation of The Tribal Adjudication Professional Certification. The training is a three-day program that has eight informational lessons strategically breaking down adjudication training. From overviews/trainings on laws and regulations, background training and policy development to understanding issue cases, summaries and developing ranking worksheet templates, this program benefits many members and non-members who are interested in conflict resolution in Indian communities.
The TAP registration has already sold out for its February training classes. The next TAP training is available from March 26 to March 28 at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. Click here to register for the March TAP. Active NNAHRA Members can attend this training for $1,145 and for Non-Members it is $1,245.
The Tribal Management Professional Certification is also a three-day program ($895 for NNAHRA members and $995 for non-members) featuring comprehensive modules such as Talent Acquisition, Behavioral Interviewing, Performance Evaluation and Leadership 101 and Advanced. These modules offer practical benefits, including enhanced recruitment efficiency, improved decision-making in candidate selection and the fostering of employee growth and continuous improvement. Tal Moore, NNAHRA Foundation Director, will be the key facilitator for the program.
The daily sessions, held from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., will be facilitated throughout the program. A 50-question exam is taken on the third day of the session with a required pass rate of 65%. Certification is maintained by taking at least 24 hours of NNAHRA-approved educational programs every two years.
These programs are a great addition to its existing training known as the Tribal Human Resources Professional (THRP) Certification Program. The THRP Certification is recognized as an essential credential for any HR professional working in Indian Country to further their knowledge and professional expertise. For more information, please contact Moore at

The National Native American Human Resources Association is a nonprofit organization comprised of human resources professionals and tribal leaders actively employed by a tribal government or tribal entity. Association and Foundation business is conducted by an elected Board of Directors, who serve two-year terms in a volunteer capacity and all work directly for Human Resources in Indian Country.
Historically, the association started out as a grassroots effort with four tribes meeting to network and share personnel issues and challenges nearly twenty-six years ago. The meetings evolved into conferences, and the membership grew into a formal northwest and then national association. What started with four members is now over 2,000 strong. For more information, please visit  The NNAHRA Foundation was founded three years ago as a non-profit arm of the Association with a focus in supporting the profession of indigenous human resources through education, research and scholarship.
