I work for SERRC in Juneau. We utilize AKDOLWD funding to support participants for training and utilize UAS Career Education for workforce courses in construction, welding, mechanics, mining and healthcare. We were recently notified that participants need to have one year of Alaska residency to take more than one credit of training. That means as we encourage people to move to Alaska to enhance our workforce we will make them wait one year before we can enroll them in training at a resident rate of tuition. This delays a trained workforce. Our grants are not funded high enough to pay non-resident tuition rates. In the past, it was four credits. To build our workforce all career education courses should be at resident tuition rates. What kind of advocacy to the UA Board of Regents is available to address this?
