Bowling Green Technical College Granted HVAC Excellence Accreditation

bgtcs 01 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (1/21/13) – HVAC Excellence is pleased to announce that the Bowling Green Technical College (now South-central Kentucky Community and Technical College) in Bowling Green, KY has been granted accreditation of its Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) program.
 
The HVAC industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States according to the United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS has stated that 65.6% of the service persons in the HVAC industry in 2020 will be people who were not in the HVAC industry in 2010.

With technology changing so rapidly, how can prospective students identify which program will put their career on the fast track to success?
 
They do this by looking for a nationally accredited HVAC program.
 
Programmatic accreditation is where an independent third party HVAC Excellence reviews a program against set educational and industry standards in:
 
• curriculum
• faculty
• student facilities
• placement services
• financial aid
• advisory committee involvement
• training facilities
• equipment & safety
 
In seeking accreditation the staff at Bowling Green Technical College had to complete and submit a self study evaluation of their program that demonstrates how they meet each required standard.
 
The self study once completed was sent to HVAC Excellence for their executive team 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.
 
Having reviewed all of the documentation from the self study and on site team visitation report., the HVAC Excellence accreditation review committee decided to grant a six year accreditation of the program, the highest attainable.
 
Now that the program has been granted accreditation it can:
 
– provide employers with confidence in the quality of the program
– assist students in selecting a program
– assist students with transfer credits
– help the students with advanced placement in the United Association apprenticeship program
 
The Bowling Green Technical College joins an elite list of schools nationally that have validated their programs through programmatic accreditation.
