The Georgia Sheet Metal JATC recently earned Platinum level accreditation from the International Training Institute (ITI). ITI is responsible for setting the standards for higher education in the sheet metal industry.
Every five years, JATCs are fully assessed by the ITI to determine their level of accreditation and identify areas of improvement. The accreditation is based on 17 categories of criteria in which points are earned. In order to achieve platinum level, the JATC must earn between 520 and 667 points as well as five Platinum specific requirements.
Platinum status is the highest honor and is achieved by only 10-15% of all JATCs across the country.
