CiTi Earns National Accreditation

ATLANTA, Ga. – On June 12, the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation was granted accreditation by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education.

Accreditation status is based on the evaluation of an institution’s ability to meet the commission’s standards of quality while simultaneously meeting the needs of students, the community and employers.

The evaluation process included an extensive self-study by CiTi and a thorough review by a visiting team of professional educators representing the commission’s member institutions from other states.

CiTi began its self-study in November 2013 and underwent a group visit spearheaded by visiting team chairman James R. Taggart in October 2014.

As a result of this visit and the entire process, the commission granted accreditation to nearly 20 CiTi programs.

According to CiTi District Superintendent Christopher Todd, the accreditation announcement is a reflection on the quality programs, technology and instructors at CiTi.

“This is a testament to the hard work of our staff members and our students,” Todd said. “The accreditation process is intensive and demanding, but CiTi met the rigorous criteria set forth by the commission. I am truly pleased with the commission’s determination and it reinforces the belief that CiTi is, indeed, an education destination.”

The Council on Occupational Education, based in Atlanta, Ga., offers quality assurance services to postsecondary technical education providers across the nation.

Organized as a nonprofit corporation, the mission of the council is to assure quality and integrity in career and technical education.
