There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

A network of Colleges and Registered Apprenticeship Programs
working together to provide college-to-career opportunities

The RACC is a national network of postsecondary institutions, employers, unions and associations working to create opportunities for apprentice graduates who may want to further enhance their skills by completing an Associate's or Bachelor's Degree. Membership also includes state, regional and national organizations that represent Registered Apprenticeship sponsors and colleges. The RACC is administered by the U.S. Departments of Labor and Education. College members agree to provide credit for a Registered Apprenticeship completion certificate as recommended by a recognized third party evaluator. Currently, there are thousands of existing articulation agreements between a single college and local Registered Apprenticeship program. The consortium will create a national network of colleges and Registered Apprenticeship sponsors allowing apprentice graduates to accelerate completion of their postsecondary degrees at member colleges.

All Registered Apprenticeship RACC members must have their programs evaluated by a third party organization to determine the college credit value of the apprenticeship completion certificate. Currently, the American Council on Education (ACE), the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) and two- and four-year postsecondary institutions that provide a similar evaluation process to Registered Apprenticeship programs as ACE and NCCRS are organizations acceptable as Third Party Evaluators. All RACC college members must be degree-granting institutions that are accredited by a regional institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
