Canadian HVAC Association

When it comes down to selecting a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must ascertain is that your preferred choice of college you have selected has the necessary accreditations. This is ultra important, as it means that the training program imparted will be at least as good as specified by HVAC organizations.

The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs is the National Center for Construction Education and Research, 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. Select a college that has at least one accreditation.

It is also important to try and find small class numbers, because then you will receive one on one attention from the program teachers. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science laboratory with professional-grade tools. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the teaching areas, the facilities available and talk to the teachers, if possible. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in time-managing classes for students with external jobs, and also how you might go about procuring financial aid, if you might need it.
