PAHRA grants accreditation to more eligible HVACR training programs.

ARLINGTON, Va. - Four more HVACR training programs have earned approval from the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Accreditation.

The programs are: Carver Career and Technical Education Center in Charleston, W.Va.; Miami Valley Career and Technology Center in Clayton, Ohio; Moore Norman Technology Center in Norman, Okla.; and Somerset County Technology Center in Somerset, Pa.

According to PAHRA, its accreditation certifies that each of the institutions have exceeded industry standards in instruction, curriculum, students, faculty and facilities.

"PAHRA is proof that our students will receive the education they need to be successful in the industry," said Roy Waldroop of Moore Norman Technology Center. "It guarantees to contractors that the students they hire from the Moore Norman program will be prepared when they enter the job market."

To become PAHRA accredited, a training school must first evaluate its own strengths and weaknesses and then submit its findings in a self-study report. A survey team then conducts an on-site visit.
