Sheridan Technical College Celebrates 45 Years of Accreditation

Congratulations to Sheridan Technical College for completing 45 years of accredited status by the Council on Occupational Education, a national accrediting agency of higher education institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Sheridan Technical, which initially became accredited with the Council in 1974, has undergone self-studies and reviews every six years to maintain its accreditation. The college will be recognized during the Council’s annual meeting in Reno, Nevada on November 13 – 15, 2019. Sheridan Technical Director Thomas Moncilovich and Assistant Director Annette Johnson will represent the college and accept the award at the annual meeting in Reno.

The award of accreditation is based on an evaluation to demonstrate that the institution meets not only the standards of quality of the Council, but also the needs of students, the community and employers. Sheridan Tech was one of the first institutions to be accredited under the Council.

Sheridan Technical College offers career and technical study programs affording students the opportunity to gain skills in high-wage, high-demand occupational fields and compete successfully in the global workforce. Under the direction of licensed and certified teaching professionals, students engage in full or part time training in 47 career and technical education programs using the latest industry-approved technology and equipment.
