Recognition of Acquired Competencies Program (RAC)

RAC en

What is a RAC program?

The recognition of acquired competencies (RAC) allows adults to receive official accreditation for skills learned outside of the classroom.

That means that things like personal experience, workshops, on-the-job training, and work experience may count towards course credits from the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES). If you have done any kind of training outside of school or have held a job, we recommend you meet with the Education Consultant responsible for RAC. For additional information, contact Janice Callahan (This email address is being protected from spambots.

What if I’m missing some skills needed to receive my diploma?

If you have the skills to receive some credits but need additional training in order to obtain your diploma, a training plan can be developed with a RAC specialist. Training plans can range from learning guides to training in an educational institution to on-the-job training.

Some training may require additional funding. The Cree School Board may be able to assist you in your search for funding.

Who is eligible for a RAC program?

All Cree beneficiaries are eligible for the RAC program. RAC requests can be made by individuals or by organizations and companies.

Do I have to pay for a RAC program?

No, there are no costs associated with recognizing your competencies and developing a training plan.
