KPC process technology program earns certification

Kenai Peninsula College’s process technology program has received national industry certification.

KPC has been notified by the North America Process Technology Alliance that both KPC’s Kenai River Campus and Anchorage Extension Site’s process technology program has received the NAPTA Process Technology certification and endorsement.

NAPTA is a national organization of process technology education providers and their business, industry and community advisers cooperatively working toward common goals. According to the NAPTA website, the organization is the standard-bearer of process technology curriculum and provides audits of programs and endorsements of those that meet its criteria. KPC is now one of only several colleges in North America to receive the NAPTA endorsement.

The certification award was based on the results of a 2014 audit of both programs. The award will be presented at the April 2015 NAPTA quarterly meeting to be held April 24 at the Isle of Capri Convention Center in Lake Charles, La.
