This website supports the goals of California’s Strong Workforce Program (SWP), an initiative designed to expand career technical education (CTE) programs in the state’s community colleges, further improve response to workforce demands, and deliver the skill sets required by our local employers. To implement the SWP, seven regional consortia were established by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office to provide leadership in the creation and implementation of career education. The North Far North Regional Consortium (NFNRC) is charged with coordinating the planning and implementation of the program in the North Far North Region of California.
NFNRC serves the largest geographic area of the state, from the Sacramento Metro area north to the Oregon border, and from the North Coast across the Cascade and Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges to the Nevada border. The North Far North Region is comprised of two subregions and 15 colleges.
The Greater Sacramento Area region (the “North”) encompasses seven counties (El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba) and includes eight colleges:
- American River College
- Cosumnes River College
- Folsom Lake College
- Lake Tahoe Community College

The Far North region encompasses 15 counties (Butte, Colusa, Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity) and includes seven colleges:
