Prospective Students

When you attend an DETC-accredited institution, you are attending a school that has undergone a rigorous process that evaluates educational quality.

DETC-accredited institutions focus on vocational, technical, and career-oriented program offerings. Students who attend an DETC-accredited school can expect to engage in a learning environment that stresses hands-on training and the development of job-related skills lead by instructors with practical work experience in the field.

More importantly, students can rely upon the accreditation process to hold DETC-accredited institutions accountable for providing the training and services necessary to assist students to be successful in their chosen fields of study. 

Prospective students interested in attending an institution accredited by DET Care encouraged to work directly with that institution to garner a better understanding of the admission requirements, the school’s mission, the school’s educational program offerings, as well as the school’s student services including graduate placement assistance.
