Virginia Beach Technical, Career Education Center gets accreditation
HVAC Excellence reviewed the center’s heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration program
HVAC Excellence is pleased to announce that the Virginia Beach Technical and Career Education Center, in Virginia Beach, Virginia has been granted accreditation of their Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration "HVACR" program.
Knowing that the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration "HVACR" industry is one of the fastest growing careers in the United States, the Virginia Beach Technical and Career Education Center, wanted to make certain that their HVACR program met nationally established standards. To accomplish this, they voluntarily went through programmatic accreditation of their HVACR program.
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.
In order to pursue accreditation, the staff at the school had to submit a self-study filled with narratives and examples of how they complied with each of the required standards. The self-study, once completed, was sent to the HVAC Excellence accreditation review board to thoroughly assess for compliance against each standard.
HVAC Excellence, having approved the self-study, sent a team to conduct an intense, onsite review of the program. The onsite team consists of two members, one who has served 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.
Upon a thorough review of all of the documentation presented by the school and the onsite accreditation team, the HVAC Excellence accreditation review board decided to grant accreditation of the program.
