I think this is a really interesting school. And it's accredited - just not for degrees, though. This is the sort of accreditation you might see most often on a legit K-12 school - distance or private. It's real. I have no problem with them accrediting a trade/hobby/skill school like this, provided the curriculum merits it. Here's their site: | Hot Rod Institute - Hot Rodding and More Here's their accreditation statement: HRI Granted Full Accreditation | Hot Rod Institute - Hot Rodding and More Here's the accreditor's site: About Us | AdvancED As they say: "AdvancED was created through a 2006 merger of the Pre-K-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2012."
