Pending Program Endorsements
Friday, December 30, 2016 is the next deadline to submit a request for Program Endorsement.

BACCC has submitted the following request for Program Endorsement on behalf of Bay Region colleges. In hopes of accelerating the offering of Business Information Worker I & II Certificates of Achievement, we are proposing the region approve a blanket endorsement for any college that wishes to offer these certificates. College's wishing to offer one or both of the certificates would NOT need to independently seek BACCC endorsement, because the region would have endorsed any/all colleges offering the certificate based on demand that would not be exceeded even if all 28 colleges offered the certificates. The rationale for the certificates is elaborated on in detail at the link below. We invite feedback through the voting mechanism or feel free to email us with any questions or concerns. 
Please review the request below, then CLICK HERE to vote for endorsement or to request further discussion. Contact: Rock Pfotenhauer, BACCC Chair, rock@baccc.net, (831) 479-6482 or Kit O'Doherty, BACCC Director, kitodoherty@gmail.com, (650) 560-9798.

Diablo Valley College has submitted the following request for Program Endorsement-SUBSTANTIAL CHANGES TO EXISTING APPROVED CREDIT PROGRAMS. The college Early Childhood Education department has offered this curriculum as a locally-approved certificate of accomplishment for many years, and it is the entry point for many students. Based on recommendation of the Advisory Committee, the department proposes to convert this local certificate to a state approved certificate, so that students can transcript this award, which will improve their competitiveness in the workplace. Please review the request below, then CLICK HERE to vote for endorsement or to request further discussion.
