Weatherford College’s respiratory care program has received the Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award from the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care for the fifth year in a row.

There are more than 400 respiratory care programs in the United States, with an average of 75 programs received this distinction each year, said program director Tonya Edwards.

The credentialing pass rate for the WC program is 100 percent, and the program has job placement rates of greater than 90 percent with most of the remaining students continuing their education into bachelor degrees.

“It is an honor to work with a team that continually and uncompromisingly strives toward excellence,” said Edwards and her fellow instructors. “The hard work and perseverance of both students and faculty are what allow us to achieve these outcomes. As faculty, we have had the privilege of teaching dedicated students that want to make an impact in the lives of their patients and the community they serve.”
