NMJC's PrintEd Program Reaccredited
5/1/2007 1:00:38 p.m. - Hobbs, NM. New Mexico Junior College's PrintEd Program recently received reaccredidation from the Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation, a national accreditation and certification program.
One of only 85 accredited PrintEd programs in the nation, NMJC is the only accredited program in New Mexico.
Students completing any NMJC's PrintEd courses, who meet specific requirements, are eligible to participate in the PrintEd national online examination(s), which are Graphic Communications, Offset Press Operations, and Digital File Preparation. Students earning satisfactory scores will receive certification in the related area(s).
"When I came to the college seven years ago, one of my first projects was to obtain accreditation for this program, and now we've received our second five-year reaccredidation," explains Matt Kriftcher, professor of commercial graphic design/computer graphics.
The reaccredidation process, which started in June 2006 and completed in March 2007, consisted of a re-application for accreditation, a self-study of NMJC's PrintED Program, a compilation binder that contains documentation proving the institution meets required program standards, and an on-site facility inspection.
