    If the former, then definitely :yikes: Cuz it would sound exactly like


    Now, it might not be the highest quality accreditation around, but it would be the most entertaining.

    Going away with Training and Council, adding Accreditation Commission is a good direction.

    The opponents who try politically diminish the value of DETC accredited degrees always state that DETC - DEAC schools providing training but not an education, for example courses how to repair small engine etc, and other types of vocational training.

    Today DEAC National or Trans Regional accreditation ranges from secondary schools to Professional Doctorates degree.
    It level of recognition by CHEA and DoE is similar to RA accrediting commissions.

    This would seem to be a small step forward. Good for them!:bigok:

    Interesting. Not their first name change, either, as they started out as the National Home Study Council. Anyway, I updated their Wikipedia entry.

    As the holder of three master's degrees from three DETC-accredited schools, I like it.

    It's a good move. But I'm nostalgic. My first college credits & a certificate were from DETC school.

    I'm not sure I like the new name. I dropped out of two DETC schools.
