Background of HVACR Programmatic Accreditation
Programmatic accreditation in the HVACR industry began in 1999, when HVAC Excellence established the national standards.
What is Programmatic Accreditation?
Programmatic accreditation is an independent third party review of an educational program. The process validates that established standards of excellence for HVACR
educational programs are met. These standards are designed to ensure that our future workforce receives the quality of training required to provide the skills necessary
for success in the HVACR industry. Accreditation standards require a thorough examination of: mission of program, administrational responsibilities, finances and funds,
student services, instruction design and program elements, physical facilities, equipment and tools, cooperative training and instructor qualifications.
