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 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.
