TERO Vocational Training Center

The TERO Vocational Training Center (TVTC) is a training organization under the Tulalip Tribes Tribal Employment Rights Office (TERO). Its focus is training Native Americans and their families allowing them to secure family wage positions in the construction field. The training facility has been in operation since 2002 and is accredited through both Renton Technical College and South Seattle Community College. It is also formally recognized by the Washington State Apprenticeship and Training Council (WSATC) as an apprenticeship preparation program.

The program works closely with many registered apprenticeship programs and successful completion of the training allows preferential and/or direct entry into programs such as carpenters, cement masons, ironworkers, operating engineers, sheet metal workers, laborers, and electricians.
