Guam - More than twenty employees with the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority along with some participants from the CNMI received national certification for their respective jobs. GHURA deputy director Ray Topasna says the training and certification now means they have a better-educated workforce.
"GHURA is, of course, 100 percent and when we first came on board Nan Mckay conducted an assessment and the assessment revealed that a majority of the staff were not up to federal standards so we felt it was necessary to bring out the trainers," he said. 
He adds the training was provided by Nan McKay, a consulting firm from San Francisco, who helped elevate the skill set of GHURA's Section 8 housing choice voucher and public housing program employees to unprecedented levels.
