Proposal to Revise the Use of Certificates


This proposal is intended to provide the California Community College system with a means by which to better serve student needs and enhance the ability of the CHANCELLOR'S Office to record and report the many different certificates that are now awarded by local community colleges. The proposal seeks to provide for certificates that have a high degree of credibility with employers so that they will be helpful to students seeking employment. Adoption of this proposal will also bring greater uniformity to certificates and other awards, thereby making them more portable than are many of today's certificates.
