BECOMING A

COURSE ASSISTANT

BECOMING A TGH COURSE ASSISTANT

  • Please note that course assistants are only for the TGH School and TGH Early Childhood programs. If a course is eligible for a course assistant the instructor will find the needed information in their course approval confirmation email.

1. Complete an online Course Assistant Application

  • Ask the instructor of the course for their Course Assistant Application link which was sent to them in an email titled “Starting your TGH Course”. The instructor can also email us at program@techgoeshome.org for the link. 

  • Completing an application does not guarantee that you will become a course assistant.

2. Submit documentation for a Background CORI Check

  • In order to comply with federal law, TGH is required to conduct CORI checks for all course assistants.

  • You will be asked to complete the CORI Acknowledgement Form after completing your application.

  • You will need to provide a government-issued picture ID such as a Driver's License, Passport, State ID, or Legal Resident Card.

  • You will receive an email letting you know whether or not your CORI has been accepted by TGH.

  • If you have a CORI record, please know that TGH will make decisions compassionately.

3. Receive a Decision Regarding Your Course Assistant Application

  • Once all the steps above are complete TGH will make a decision on your application.

  • In some instances, TGH may ask for additional steps or follow-up before making a final decision.

  • You will receive an email letting you know if your application has been approved or denied.

Important notes:

  • The instructor for the course you are assisting must include your name on the course application or email us at program@techgoeshome.org to add your name to the course. If this is not done, it may affect your eligibility to get paid for the course.
