The CCCJ prides itself in being a quality standard body and as such conducts regular quality assurance visits to the colleges to ensure compliance. Additionally, community college programmes are submitted to the University Council of Jamaica (UCJ), the National Accreditation Agency of Jamaica. Community College programmes also benefit from national, regional and international recognition from several colleges and universities overseas. Most of the CCCJ programmes are accredited by UCJ.

We recently held our Pre-judging Competition event at the brown's town community college where several teams showed up to present what they have so far to a panel of judges similar to the finals of the competition. This gave the teams the opportunity to know what the finals competition would be like and to receive feeback from the judges about their presentation. We had teams from Brown's Town Community College, Moneague and Portmore Community College.
