About Accredited Courses:

Students who complete courses at PVNet will be provided with a WASC Accredited Certificate for inclusion with their transcripts. These courses carry the same weight as those taken at students' schools. Regardless of which school in the U.S. students attend, WASC is the accrediting body and there is no differentiation between a school accredited course and the WASC accredited course offered at PVNet. It is up to the student's school whether the course will be transcripted.

If you're looking for more information or have questions, use the form at the bottom of the page to let us know which course you're interested in taking.

Some of the accredited courses are offered in partnership with Southern California Regional Occupational Center, who has in place relationships with many South Bay schools. In those cases, courses will be added to the student's transcripts by SCROC and the student's school.
