What is ACS WASC Accreditation Mean?

ACS WASC accreditation is a school improvement process and therefore is a process that serves as the foundation for quality education. An accredited school is a statement to the broader community and the stakeholders that it is trustworthy institution for student learning and committed to ongoing improvement.

Over the next semesters you will complete 2100 hours of coursework.  Notably, you will complete  30 hours of intercultural communication, race, gender, sex orientation,  and religious studies.  A minimum of 50 hours of study in best business and sales practices to earn gainful employment, become an independent trainer, or even open your own studio one day.
