NEW YORK — The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced that Blue C LLC, which does business as HVACRedu.net, has been accredited under the ANSI Certificate Accreditation Program, or ANSI-CAP.

Blue C LLC/HVACRedu.net is a professional organization of HVACR educators working together to provide comprehensive online assessments, reviews, courses, and programs for the HVACR industry. The ANSI accreditation has been awarded to the HVACR 4-Year Apprenticeship Program.

“ANSI commends Blue C for achieving accreditation under ANSI-CAP and demonstrating their commitment to the continual improvement of their certificate programs,” said Lane Hallenbeck, ANSI vice president of accreditation services. “Accreditation under ANSI-CAP helps to assure integrity and consistency within the credentialing field, and helps to bolster a more robust and qualified workforce. Blue C now has a concrete way to show students and customers that its certificates represent the best in quality education and training.”

Launched in 2009, ANSI-CAP accredits organizations that issue education and training certificates to the U.S. workforce. ANSI-CAP provides neutral, third-party accreditation that a given certificate program meets ASTM E2659-09, Standard Practice for Certificate Programs, an American National Standard developed by ASTM International.

“This has been a grass roots effort since we started,” said Chris Compton, CEO at Blue C. “We now have the only ANSI-accredited HVACR technician apprenticeship related training program in the world. It’s also worth mentioning that it’s the only online program. Now we have both ANSI and HVAC Excellence accreditations which serve as monuments for our hard work. Achieving this level of accreditation should leverage decision makers at all levels to recognize that online for the trades occupations is a worthwhile endeavor and a significant tool to be used to keep our workforce in top notch condition in a very efficient and timely way.”
