Programs offered at the Fayette Institute of Technology are
approved by the West Virginia Department of Education and accredited by
the Council on Occupational Education.
The Council on Occupational Education came into existence initially in
1971 as the Commission on Occupational Education Institutions (COEI) of
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), a regional
accrediting association that serves institutions in an 11-state region.
Operating as a unit of SACS, COEI provided accreditation services to
postsecondary occupational education institutions located, with a few
special exceptions, in the SACS region.
Accreditation by the Council on Occupational Education is viewed as a
nationally-honored seal of excellence for occupational education
