LAREDO, Texas - Laredo Community College has been granted a six year accreditation of its HVACR program by HVAC Excellence.

In seeking accreditation, the staff at Laredo Community College completed a self-study evaluation of the program against set standards in curriculum, faculty, student facilities, placement services, financial aid, and advisory committee involvement, training facilities, equipment and safety. The self-study once completed was sent to HVAC Excellence for its executive team to 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 Laredo Community College program with commendation. The accreditation validates that the program is preparing students for jobs in the HVACR industry and verifies that the program has the needed resources and administrative support to accomplish its goals.
