All of the programs should be commended as they have met or surpassed the strict national standards established by HVAC Excellence. Each of these programs submitted a self-study measuring their programs against HVAC Excellence standards. After each self-study was reviewed and approved of by the HVAC Excellence executive board, an onsite evaluation team of recognized professionals, comprised of HVACR educators and school administrators, from within the HVACR industry, validated the self-study through an intense on-site visit of the programs.
Programmatic Accreditation benefits the industry as it certifies that a program meets or exceeds all established standards and requirements of academic excellence in curriculum, student facilities, placement services, financial aid, training facilities, equipment, safety and faculty credentials. HVAC Excellence is the only HVACR organization to meet the United States Federal Regulations for accrediting HVACR programs.
