Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) January 05, 2012
Unitek College's Sacramento Campus is proud and very excited to announce that their career training programs have received accreditation from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). ACCSC is recognized by the United States Department of Education as a private, non-profit, independent accrediting agency that is dedicated to ensuring a quality education for 250,000+ students who pursue career education at 800 accredited institutions.
ACCSC stimulates nurtures, verifies and recognizes ongoing educational quality and integrity in institutions offering programs of a vocational and career-oriented nature. ACCSC’s mission has an objective to assure students and the general public of the quality of educational training provided by ACCSC-accredited institutions and their programs.
Navraj Bawa, COO, Unitek College commented, "We are excited that our Sacramento Campus’s vocational training programs are now accredited. This underscores the high standards of quality education we impart in our vocational courses. Students looking to advance their careers can rest assured that they are making the correct decision by enrolling in our high-quality training programs."
This is encouraging news for those students who have been pursuing career-training programs offered by Unitek College in Sacramento including the Vocational Nursing Training, and Medical Assistant Training programs.
Receiving ACCSC accreditation is a very important milestone for the Sacramento campus. National accreditation is a standard that all quality education institutions and colleges strive for. The process takes years, and requires the involvement of all staff and management at the school. As stated by ACCSC itself, "ACCSC accreditation enhances the quality of education provided and promotes institutional accountability by systematically and comprehensively evaluating institutions based upon criteria established via the Standards of Accreditation."
The accreditation for the Sacramento campus will benefit the local student community tremendously. Some of these benefits include:
- Access to Federal financial aid options to qualifying students (after Title IV approval is received from the Department of Education)
- Ability to transfer credits more easily
- Assurance that instructors are qualified
- Recognition of training by other schools and employers
- Comprehensive program that is updated regularly as per ACCSC’s benchmarks
"This is a perfect time for people to get career training, to advance in the field they are in, or to make the switch to a new field," stated Navraj Bawa. "With this accreditation, Unitek College is ready and able to help people move to the next step in their career, with quality vocational training programs." Unitek College has two Northern California-based campuses, one each in Fremont and Sacramento, with a satellite location for Fremont in Santa Clara, CA. The healthcare training programs run from 8 to 18 months in length, depending on the area of study.
