The Eastern New Mexico University in Roswell, New Mexico has been
granted accreditation of their HVACR program by HVAC Excellence.
With over 1,200 HVAC programs in the United States, how can
prospective students identify which program will put their career on
the fast track to success? How can an employer identify a program
that has the resources and administrative support to help them find
graduates for employment? They do this by looking for a program that
has been granted HVAC Excellence programmatic accreditation.
Programmatic accreditation is where an independent third party
reviews a program against set educational and industry standards in:
the mission of the program, administrational responsibilities,
finances and funds, student services, instruction design and program
elements, physical facilities, equipment and tools, cooperative
training, instructor qualifications.

In order to pursue
accreditation the staff at a school has 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. The selection of these team
members gives integrity to the accreditation process and
provides students with confidence in the program.
Upon a thorough review of all of the documentation presented by
the schools and the onsite accreditation team, the HVAC
Excellence accreditation review committee decided to grant
accreditation of the program.
Now that the program has been granted accreditation it can:
provide students with quality assurance of the program, provide
employers assurance that graduates are properly trained, can
assists in establishing articulation agreements, an eligibility
determinant for funding, can increase enrollment, student
placement and employer satisfaction is enhanced, requires
faculty participation in self-study and annual reporting, can
assist students in the acceptability of transfer credits,
creates goals for self-improvement.
