ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Technical College's Visual Communication and Printing Graphics program has received national accreditation.  

Right now some of the student's work is showcased in the lobby of the Kirkland building. To get the accreditation, Albany Tech's program had to meet the industry standard for graphic communications courses at the secondary and post secondary levels. 

It should help employers who hire graduates know they're getting qualified workers. 

  "It's good for the employers, it says that students know what they have been trained on and it looks good on the student's resume," said Print/Graphics & Visual Communications Director Jill Mash. 

Albany Tech's program currently has 41 students enrolled.  Students graduating have skills in graphic design, web site design, print publication, and digital file preparation.
