Recognition of Acquired Competencies

The Recognition of Acquired Competencies (RAC) allows adults to receive credit for skills learned outside of the classroom.

Do you have

  • Personal experience
  • Workshops
  • On-the-job training
  • Work experience? 

It 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.

How does RAC work?

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 vary - in some cases they are learning guides; in others you may attend school to gain the skills, or receive on-the-job training.

The Cree School Board may be able to assist you in your search for funding for these programs.

Who is eligible for a RAC program?

All Cree beneficiaries are eligible for RAC. 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.

How do I apply for a RAC program or get more information?

Contact our Education Consultant responsible for RAC to see what RAC can do for you.

Visit the MEES website for additional information on the RAC program.
