COTC Human Services Program Receives Accreditation

March 1, 2016 - 10:10 AM

Central Ohio Technical College's (COTC) Human Services Program has been accredited by the Council for Standards in Human Service Education (CSHSE).  The national accreditation period runs from February, 2016 through February, 2021.

CSHSE is the only national organization accrediting human service education programs. The council is committed to assuring the quality, consistency and relevance of human service education through research-based standards and a peer-review, accreditation process. Students graduating from CSHSE accredited programs are eligible to apply for the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE) Human Services-Board Certified Practitioner (HS-BCP) credential. The credential is designed for human services practitioners seeking to advance their careers by acquiring independent verification of their practical knowledge and educational background.

"This is wonderful news for our students," said Human Services Program Director Tressa Arnold. "The CSHSE Board voted to accredit COTC's program with no provisions, and we are extremely pleased."

In the accreditation letter to Arnold, CSHSE cited many strengths of the COTC Human Services Program including:

  • The entire Human Services Program is offered at all four COTC campuses
  • Current students and COTC alumni noted that students receive a bachelor/master's-level education
  • Students enter their field experience well-prepared for case management tasks
  • Field placement sites offer students a comprehensive experience

"This was the first time that a COTC program applied for national accreditation and received it with no provisions," said COTC President Bonnie L. Coe, Ph.D. "I am thrilled for our faculty, staff and students. This is a wonderful accomplishment."

Students who graduate from COTC's Human Services Program pursue careers as social worker assistants, chemical dependency counselor assistants, case managers, intake coordinators and group leaders. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of social and human service assistants is expected to grow by 28 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.
