Saskatchewan Polytech Testimonial for TAC

Saskatchewan Polytechnic firmly believes in and supports third-party accreditation—with policies and procedures in place to ensure that programs seek the highest level of accreditation possible and undergo regular accreditation review. Our 15 technology and applied science programs are accredited by Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC). Achieving national program accreditation provides confidence to students, industry and the educational institution that the program has met defined standards. National program accreditation with TAC also benefits students by providing a streamlined pathway towards professional registration as an Applied Science Technologist (A.Sc.T.), or a Certified Technician (C.Tech.) with Technology Professionals Saskatchewan. As an organization that strives to lead the rise of polytechnic education, we appreciate the recommendations provided by TAC’s audit teams as our technology and applied science accreditation body.

College of the North Atlantic Testimonial for TAC 

Accreditation matters. It is the quality assurance process through an independent team of certified professionals performing an extensive audit that confirms a program meets a strict and recognized set of standards. All programs in CNA’s School of Engineering have received full accreditation from Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC). We embrace accreditation to ensure accountability of our college programs, which also boosts public trust and confidence. When a diploma program is properly accredited, we have the assurance of its rigorous quality control; our students know that our college will provide a high-quality educational experience, giving them that vital peace of mind. When graduating from a nationally accredited program, our students are provided an accelerated pathway to becoming a certified professional with the Association of Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Newfoundland and Labrador (AETTNL), which is an organization that represents the interests of technicians and technologists in this province. In addition, for our local and international students, the recognition of these accredited programs by the International Engineering Alliance under the Sydney or Dublin Accords means CNA graduates will have qualifications that are internationally recognized.
