The program recommendation process outlined by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) requires that all requests to add new programs or certificates to a college’s inventory of occupational programs include a recommendation from the Regional Consortium.
The process is intended to inform regional discussion and foster collaboration with the goal of developing and advancing career education programs that address the local workforce and student needs.
If you are a faculty or staff member who has been tasked with developing a new CTE certificate or degree program, you will need to secure BACCC recommendation before you submit your program approval documents to the State Chancellor’s Office for formal approval (chaptering).
To start the recommendation process, request the latest Labor Market Information by completing a online LMI form.
Review current LMI for related market/economic conditions & similar programs in your service area.
Colleges submit programs including COE LMI report to Regional CTE by the deadline.
Ballot is sent with voting deadline. Recommendations are finalized during the BACCC monthly call .
After the vote, the BACCC will send a confirmation notice with consent agenda for inclusion when submitting to CCCCO for chaptering.
