In 1999 HVAC Excellence was the first organization to create programmatic accreditation for HVACR programs in the United States. Since that time,
HVAC Excellence has grown to the industry’s largest and oldest provider of HVACR programmatic accreditation.
The onsite team consist of two members, one who has served years as an HVACR instructor, the other as a school administrator. These onsite team
members are seasoned professionals that possess the knowledge, training and experience to successfully evaluate every aspect of an HVACR program.
The selection of these team members gives integrity to the accreditation process and provides students with confidence in the program.
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 assure 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.
