Registered Apprenticeship College Consortium

A network of Colleges and Registered Apprenticeship Programs

Working together to provide college-to-career opportunities

The Registered Apprenticeship-College Consortium (RACC) remains an important network of colleges and Registered Apprenticeship Programs working together to provide college-to-career opportunities. The Office of Apprenticeship is in the process of updating information collection forms to capture more robust information on registered apprenticeship activity within the network. Once new forms are approved, we will post them to the RACC website alongside a new user friendly application tool.
