If you’ve decided that the RAC process is right for you, here are the steps you need to take to apply.
1. Attend Information Session
The first step is to attend an information session about the RAC service that interests you. This can help you learn more about the RAC process, which will help you decide if it is right for you.
Sign up for an info session
In our sign-up form, you may also choose to request a personalized assessment of your CV. One of our RAC advisors will then help you determine if the RAC process is right for you.
2. Admission to RAC
Meet with a RAC advisor to submit your application documents
Once you have attended an information session and have decided to apply to the RAC service, you will need to meet with an advisor to discuss your candidacy and to submit your application documents. A list of required documents is available on each service’s
page, in the “Preparing your Application” section.
To ensure the confidentiality of your documents, we strongly recommend that they are either sent to us by mail, uploaded via Omnivox, or dropped off in person. E-mail is an insecure medium that should NOT be used for sensitive documents. Should you use e-mail or another medium that hasn’t been mentioned here, you are taking responsibility for the risks introduced.
Complete your admissions exams
Some of the RAC services require that you take certain admissions exams. You will need to contact a RAC advisor and make an appointment to take these exams. Sample exams are available online. You can access them from the program description page for your service.
Complete your Self-Description Form
After you have submitted your application, finished your admission exams, and met with a RAC advisor, you will then be given a Self-Description Form to complete. The Self-Description form will help you to assess your skill level for the service. Once you have completed the form, please send it back to us at Champlain.
3. Attend Validation Interview
Once you have returned your Self-Description form, a Content Specialist will contact you to schedule a Validation Interview. During the Validation Interview the Content Specialist will ask you a number of questions about the same topics you saw in your Self-Description form. The Validation Interview will help the Content Specialist identify your strengths and weaknesses in the field. The Content Specialist will then decide if your background is strong enough to admit you to the RAC process.
