Many programs are free and are offered in the fields of business, healthcare and information technology. No program lasts longer than nine months, so students quickly secure the credentials needed to successfully enter their chosen field. Takoda has a small class environment and emphasizes experiential training and access to technology for its students.
Takoda graduates have access to the American Indian OIC’s nationally-recognized employment service and job placement programs. This model has proven to be quite successful for students looking to quickly secure employment credentials and enter the workforce. Strong relationships with leading local employers facilitate the swift placement candidates in career-track positions following their graduation. Takoda alumni are employed in a variety of businesses, human service organizations, health care facilities and government programs throughout the region.
Although the majority of Takoda students are American Indian, the institute’s resources and programs are available to all persons regardless of race, creed, color, age, or gender.
