The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) has recognized Central Piedmont with its Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award. The award is presented as part of the CoARC's continued efforts to value the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential as a standard of professional achievement.

To qualify for the award, Central Piedmont's respiratory therapy program had to meet the following criteria:

  • have three or more years of outcome data
  • hold accreditation without a progress report
  • document RRT credentialing success of 90% or above
  • meet or exceed CoARC thresholds for TMB high cut score and retention

Congratulations to the program's faculty, students, and alumni on this accomplishment!
