Description

The bill requires the chief administrative officer of the Colorado

community college system, or his or her designee, to convene a working
group to determine the most efficient and appropriate manner in which to
facilitate the transfer of earned construction industry registered
apprenticeship program credit to college credit. If possible, the chief
administrative officer shall include representatives from varying
community colleges, area technical schools, local district colleges,
relevant 4-year institutions that grant bachelor degrees, applicable union
and non-union labor organizations, and other interested parties. The
working group is required to meet during the interim following the first
regular session of the seventy-second general assembly. The bill specifies
issues in connection with the transfer of earned construction industry
registered apprenticeship program credits to college credit that the
working group is required to consider.
The working group is required to solicit input from subject matter
experts, including, but not necessarily limited to, labor organizations,
community college administrators, and people who are in or have
completed registered apprenticeship programs. The working group is also
required to submit to the general assembly its recommendations for the
most efficient and appropriate manner in which to facilitate the transfer
of earned construction industry registered apprenticeship program credits
to college credit, including any recommendations for necessary
legislation.
