RECOMMENDATION FOR NEW PROGRAMS:
The California Community College Chancellor’s Office requires that all requests to add new Career and Technical Education programs include a recommendation from the Regional Consortium.  This recommendation ensures program offerings meet regional labor needs and do not unnecessarily duplicate programs. While every new associate degree and certificate with 12 or more units must undergo a LMI review, certificates under 12 units that are part of a stackable program may bypass the process.
The certificate is part of a stackable program if one of the following criteria is met:

– The certificate prepares students for similar occupations as the overall program
Or
– The certificate targets incumbent workers and will help them advance in their career

PROGRAM RECOMMENDATION MEETINGS:
Meetings occur on the first Thursday of every month at 9:00am unless otherwise specified.
