The program approval process outlined by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office requires that all requests to add new programs or certificates to a college’s inventory of occupational programs include a recommendation from the Regional Occupational Consortium. Complete instructions for this process are included in the Program and Course Approval Handbook. Please refer to this publication in completing all Program Proposals for the North Far North Regional Consortium.
The recommendation of the Regional Occupational Consortium is intended to inform members of the Consortia about changes in programs at member colleges and to foster a spirit of collaboration and coordination that results in viable and accessible choices of occupational and workforce education throughout the region. To obtain this recommendation, college representatives are to follow the local process as set forth by the member colleges of the North/Far North Regional Consortium.
