You’ve likely heard about CAHill’s aQuiRe Construction Academy and the hundreds of stellar graduates poised to enter the workforce this year. As we’ve shared, many of them have already begun their new career working on some iconic construction projects. We believe we’ve built a robust program delivering professional industry development that is among the best in the nation.

Well, you no longer have to take our word for it.

We're incredibly proud to announce that our aQuiRe Construction Academy Training Program has been officially certified by the prestigious American Council for Construction Education (ACCE)! This certification signifies the exceptional quality and rigor of our training program and is a testament to CAHill’s commitment to cultivating the next generation of construction industry leaders.

Established 50 years ago, ACCE has become a leading global advocate for construction education programs. According to President and CEO Steve Nellis, certified organizations are required to adhere to ACCE’s 15 benchmarks for program excellence. “These Standards are not curriculum content related. Instead, they are learning outcome-focused. We also require that curriculum and assessment be reviewed regularly, with multiple stakeholder reviews and feedback, and that resources to deliver the content (staff, technology, physical facilities, or online platforms) be accessible and use current technology.” 

By meeting these 15 standards, CAHill TECH joins an esteemed list of certified education providers that include universities, industry associations, and private training organizations.
