ACE credit logoCOLLEGE STATION – The American Council on Education (ACE) recently recommended college credit for 56 TEEX courses, including 17 Water & Wastewater courses, which were reviewed and recommended for ACE credit for the first time. ACE credit opens doors for TEEX students, giving them access to academic credit that can be applied toward associate’s and bachelor’s degree plans, as well as vocational training programs. 

The ACE recommendations followed a review of the courses and a site visit to TEEX by a team of seven educators from colleges and universities across the country, including the University of Maryland, Oklahoma State University, University of Southern Illinois and Blinn College. The team was led by the Director of ACE’s College Credit Recommendation Service, from Washington, D.C.

“These reviewers know quality when they see it, and that’s what we have,” said Tony Casper, Director of TEEX Curriculum and eLearning. “The reviewers commented on the thoughtfulness, completeness and quality of our curriculum and review process.”

Nearly 400 universities and colleges recognize ACE credit recommendations. “ACE recognition shows the quality of our training courses and makes our training more attractive to potential students, especially those interested in pursuing higher education or workforce education programs,” Casper said. In the coming year, TEEX will submit applications and seek ACE credit recommendations for 50 additional courses.

The curriculum review and revision process undertaken by TEEX a number of years ago boosted the agency’s standing with ACE, Casper said. The ACE reviewers have commented that TEEX has some of the best curriculum they have seen in a training organization, he added.

All ACE-approved courses are reviewed every three years by a team of college and university faculty from across the country. View a list of ACE-approved TEEX courses.
