Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC)

The Respiratory Care Program at Hartnell College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC). Hartnell is recognized by the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC).  

What is the CoARC? 

The CoARC is a national agency that accredits first professional respiratory care degree programs at the Associate, Baccalaureate, and Masters Degree level in the United States and internationally. The CoARC also accredits professional respiratory care degree programs offering certificates in polysomnography. The Hartnell College Respiratory Care Practitioner Program is accountable to the CoARC for the effective delivery and outcomes of the RCP program. Public protection is paramount to the CoARC and its highest priority is exercising its regulatory and disciplinary functions. Toward this end, the CoARC ensures that only qualified persons are licensed Respiratory Therapists by enforcing education requirements and by educating consumers of their rights.
