The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs are 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.
Smaller class sizes are also important, because then you will receive one on one tuition from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an onsite science laboratory with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the classroom, the facilities available and talk to the faculty, if they are available. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in scheduling classes for students with external jobs, and also how you might go about researching financial aid, if required.
