College certification: responding quickly to current and emerging labour market needs
CEGEP Business Services offer a wide range of non-curricular training programs, some of which lead to “college certifications” to provide a more flexible and personalized response to the skills enhancement and retraining needs of the job market. These programs range from short to very short; they are standardized, specific, agile and offer a guarantee of quality and results that are traceable and measurable. In effect, since CEGEPs carry out an official evaluation and archive the results, they can certify skill acquisition to any current or future employer, unlike other training programs that only confirm attendance. In fact, college certifications help businesses, workers and the adult population who are in a position to move into the workforce achieve tangible results in improving and expanding their competencies, enabling them to quickly respond to current and emerging labour market needs.
RAC process: facilitating staff mobility and retention
Recognition of Acquired Competencies (RAC) is a simple and personalized process that can be completed at the person’s own pace and, most importantly, it spares them from having to relearn what they already know. An integral part of continuing education, its goal is to lead to a recognized diploma, either an Attestation of College Studies (ACS) or a Diploma of College Studies (DCS). If your employees already possess skills, ensure that they obtain an appropriate certifying diploma. This will greatly increase mobility and retention opportunities within your company.
