The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde TERO holds an on-campus Heavy Equipment Operator Training through BTI


In mid-October, the BTI Mobile Heavy Equipment Operator Classroom was transported to The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde where 8 individuals who have been part of TERO are being trained by BTI instructors. TERO Compliance Officer Duke Kimsley was quoted as saying, “This training gets the students familiar with all four pieces of equipment, so when they complete the class they are more than ready to go into the field and run it. It would be beneficial to have this training every year. My goal is to get them on a piece of machinery, which is much better than digging ditches and has great pay.” To view the article written in Smoke Signals “CLICK HERE”
