CENTRALIA, Ill. — HVAC Excellence is pleased to announce that Kaskaskia College has been granted programmatic accreditation of their HVACR program.

Kaskaskia College is a comprehensive two-year community college in Centralia, Ill., committed to the success of its students both academically and professionally. With more than 50 degree and 102 certificate programs available for transfer, or career training, Kaskaskia College prepares students for meaningful employment or transfer for further education.

Kaskaskia College knows that the HVACR industry is one of the fastest growing careers in the United States. To ensure that their program had the resources to prepare people for success in this growing field, they decided to pursue accreditation of their program.

Programmatic accreditation is an independent third party review of an educational program. The process validates that that established standards of excellence for HVACR educational programs are met.

These standards are designed to assure that our future workforce receives the quality of training required to provide the skills necessary for success in the HVACR industry.

In order to pursue accreditation the staff at the school had to submit a self-study filled with narratives and examples of how they complied with each of the required standards. The self-study once completed was sent to the HVAC Excellence accreditation review board to thoroughly assess for compliance against each standard.

HVAC Excellence having approved the self study sent an onsite team to conduct an intense onsite review of the program. The onsite team consist of two members, one who has served years as an HVACR instructor, the other as a school administrator. These onsite team members are seasoned professionals that possess the knowledge, training and experience to successfully evaluate every aspect of an HVACR program.

Upon a thorough review of all of the documentation presented by the school and the onsite accreditation team, the HVAC Excellence accreditation review board decided to grant accreditation of the program.
