Atlantic Colleges Atlantique (ACA) signs MOU for online training collaboration
Halifax, March 26, 2018 – A three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) aimed to improve online training opportunities for apprentices on the east coast has been signed among seven post-secondary public colleges in Atlantic Canada.
The MOU was ratified in February during the Atlantic Colleges Atlantique (ACA) meeting at Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) in Halifax. The agreement is the foundation for which the ACA, formerly known as the Atlantic Provinces Community College Consortium (APCCC), will spearhead a collaborative relationship to share the use of existing online training, as well as develop additional online training and resources to expand curriculum.
This MOU will position public colleges in the region to support the Atlantic Apprenticeship Harmonization Project proceeding under the auspices of the Atlantic Apprenticeship Council and cost-shared with the federal government through the Foreign Credential Recognition Program and Employment Insurance Part II. The Council is comprised of the heads of the four provincial apprenticeship authorities and chairs of the respective Apprenticeship Boards. In response to industry demand, Atlantic apprenticeship harmonization aligns apprenticeship training requirements and system processes across the region to facilitate the mobility of apprentices, support an increase in certification rates and enable employers to more easily access the workforce they need.
