Georgia Programs Up For Accreditation

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill. — The Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education (DTAE) has begun the process of accrediting its HVACR programs. The accrediting body, HVAC Excellence, will conduct an on-site evaluation of the programs as self-studies are received.

According to HVAC Excellence, each program is required to meet strict standards in curriculum, student facilities, placement services, financial aid, training facilities, equipment, and safety.

DTAE oversees the state’s system of technical colleges and a host of economic and workforce development programs. The department consists of 34 technical colleges and 18 satellite campuses. HVACR is taught at 29 of the 52 campuses. Valdosta Technical Institute, Middle Georgia Technical College, and North Georgia Technical Institute will be the first programs to go through the accreditation process.
