Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology is Proud to Celebrate 35 Years of Accreditation

The Council on Occupational Education (COE) recognized Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology for completing thirty-five years of accredited status at the Council’s Annual Meeting at the end of last year in Atlanta, Georgia. Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology, which became initially accredited with COE in 1988, has undergone self-studies and subsequent site visits about every six years to maintain this recognition. 

“We take pride in our accreditation, a symbol of our commitment to excellence in aviation education. Accreditation demonstrates our programs meet rigorous standards, providing students with a reputable and quality learning experience. It signifies our dedication to preparing graduates for the dynamic field of aeronautics, reinforcing our continued focus on meeting industry standards in aviation education.” Nick Brown, Chief Academic and Operations Officer. 

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. 

The Commission’s evaluation process includes an extensive self-study by the institution and an intensive review by a visiting team of professional educators representing the Commission’s member institutions from other states. 

The Council on Occupational Education, based in Atlanta, Georgia, offers quality assurance services to postsecondary career and technical education providers across the nation. Organized as a non-profit corporation, the mission of the Council is to assure quality and integrity in career and technical education. Services offered include institutional accreditation (recognized by the U.S. Department of Education), program quality reviews for states and workforce education providers, and informational services. Most of the Council’s work is carried out by qualified professional volunteers who are experts in workforce education. 

Institutional membership in the Council is voluntary but can only be achieved by becoming accredited. The members include postsecondary public technical institutes and colleges, specialized military and national defense schools, Job Corps Centers, private career schools, non-profit workforce education providers, corporate and industry education units, federal agency institutions and registered apprenticeships. The Council is unique among all accrediting agencies with respect to the diversity of entities that it accredits. There are over 500 institutional members at the present time.
