Accreditation is a hot topic these days and it’s easy to see why. Students across the country want to know if their certifications or degrees are worth the time and effort they put into achieving them.
“Will my potential employers think the degrees and education from School X are more valuable than School Y because of accreditation? Does this impact my ability to put my newfound skills and ideas to use?”
Yes, they will, and yes, it does.
When Your Tech School is Accredited, You’ll Be Prepared
Accreditation is important because it shows the program you’re enrolled in meets high standards. An accredited school meets certain guidelines that enable graduates to enter the workforce with the qualifications they need. These standards promote quality education, which gives graduates the skills they need to find great careers. It also helps employers find knowledgeable and professional workers.
Without accreditation, schools put everyone at risk. Students might be enrolled in a program that will leave them unprepared with no means of paying off their financial aid. And the IT industry might suffer from an influx of unqualified individuals who are unprepared for the professional workspace.
That is why accreditation is so important, and it’s why it’s such a hot topic for people seeking a new start in IT.
