Canadian HVAC Association

When choosing a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must ascertain is that the choice of college you have selected is an accredited one. This is an extremely important factor, since it means that the training provided will be at the required standard specified by professional HVAC organizations.

The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs are the NCCEA, which is the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration, HVAC Excellence, North American Technician Excellence and Research, Environmental Protection Agency, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. You MUST select a college that has a minimum of at least one accreditation.

Smaller class sizes are also important, because then you will get personalized help from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science lab with professional-grade tools. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the teaching areas, the overall facilities offered and talk to the senior lecturers, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in scheduling classes for working students, and how you could go about researching financial aid, if you are eligible.
