The program underwent rigorous evaluation by a team of peers and industry practitioners and was found to have maintained the stringent standards of ACCE. SFCC’s Construction Technology program has maintained accreditation since March 1, 2007.
Richard Vanderweide, SFCC’s Construction Technology program coordinator and instructor, said, “Maintaining our ACCE accreditation is extremely important because it tells our students that they are receiving a quality education that enables them to perform a broad range of professional responsibilities, and that enhances their job prospects. It also demonstrates our commitment to staying on top of emerging technologies and requirements that are important to the construction industry, so we’re very proud to display our ACCE plaque.”
The ACCE is the leading global advocate of quality construction education and promotes, supports and accredits quality construction education programs. The Council of Higher Education recognizes ACCE as the accrediting agency for four-year baccalaureate degree programs in Construction, Construction Science, Construction Management, and Construction Technology, and similar two-year associate degree programs.
