Bookkeeper

Christine is currently employed as a bookkeeper with the Musgamagw Tsawataineuk Tribal Council where she took her training in bookkeeping eight years ago under a NVIATS sponsored program.

Christine comments that the training was very beneficial; prior to this she was doing odd jobs and did not have a permanent position.  She is very pleased with her career and plans to remain in this field at her present place of work.

Christine would like to thank NVIATS for approving the dollars and time it took for her to gain her knowledge, and comfort in learning the whole accounting system.  The training was approved for 17 weeks and due to its nature, she had it extended as NVIATS is very flexible in offering more time if needed.  She strongly recommends any company take advantage of their programs as it opened a very successful door for her.
