Pennsylvania School Earns HVAC Excellence Accreditation

February 25, 2013
ALTOONA, Pa. — The Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center has been granted accreditation of its Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) program by HVAC Excellence.

In seeking accreditation, the staff at Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center had to complete a self study showing how they met each of the required standards. The self study, once completed, was sent to HVAC Excellence for its executive team to thoroughly assess for compliance against each standard. Upon completion of the review, HVAC Excellence selected a group of industry veterans with combined technical, administrative, and teaching experience in the HVAC industry to validate the self study through an intense review of the program.

Having reviewed the self study and evaluated the program, HVAC Excellence decided to grant a six-year accreditation of the Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center HVACR program. For more information about the school’s program, visit www.gactc.com. (Source: HVAC Excellence)
