SAM TECH RECOGNIZED AS ACCSC NATIONAL SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE FOR A THIRD TIME

The Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC) announced the list of schools recognized as 2023 Schools of Excellence. The School of Excellence Award recognizes ACCSC-accredited institution for their commitment to the expectations and rigors of ACCSC accreditation, as well as the efforts made by the institution in maintaining high-levels of achievement among their students.

We are pleased to announce that the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology has received this distinguished award.

In 2008, ACCSC introduced the School of Excellence Award which recognizes schools for their commitment to the expectations and rigors of ACCSC accreditation, as well as efforts in maintaining high levels of achievement among their students. In order to be eligible for the award, a school must meet all of the criteria established by the Commission for its School of Distinction Award. Also, a school’s graduation and employment rates from all programs offered must meet or exceed the average rates of graduation and employment among all ACCSC accredited institutions. In 2011, SAM Tech was one of only thirteen schools in the country to receive this prestigious award for the 2011-2012 school year. SAM Tech was proud to receive the award a second time in 2015-2016. For the 2022-2023 accreditation year, the School of Automotive Machinists & Technology was awarded School of Excellence for the third consecutive time.

ACCSC-accredited schools receiving this designation must meet the conditions of renewing accreditation without any finding of non-compliance, satisfy all requirements necessary to be in good standing with the Commission, and demonstrate that the majority of the schools’ student graduation and graduate employment rates for all programs offered meet or exceed the average rates of graduation and employment among all ACCSC-accredited institutions. This year fourteen schools received the honor of being named as a School of Excellence. This is less than one percent of the independent post-secondary educational institutions in the United States.

School of Automotive Machinists & Technology Executive Director Linda Massingill says, “it is an honor to be recognized and named to the ACCSC 2022-2023 Schools of Excellence. This recognition should be a valuable tool for guidance counselors, families and prospective students who are seeking an institution offering high quality vocational/technical training. Our success as a school comes from the dedication of every employee who believes in our mission and who carries that passion throughout everything they say and do.  This award validates the work of all of our SAM Tech team members and for that we are grateful. Having received this award three accreditation cycles in a row shows a dedication to education that spans more than a decade.”

In this edition of Full Speed With Phil, I document some of the mock-up process on this Small Block Chevy. I widen the chamfer on my OEM LS7 connecting rods so they will clear the large fillets on my crankshaft. (Using a tool you might not expect).As an added bonus, I discover that despite concerns about SBC cylinder offset, the sides of the small end of the rod will not require modification to clear the piston. Mock-up is essential on a fully custom unit like this. 👌#educationatfullspeed, #samtechedu, #enginebuilder, #SBC, #smallblockchevy, #custom, #ls7, #titanium, #enginebuilding, #machinist, #tools, #dirttrackracing ...
