When choosing a HVAC college program, the first thing that you must find out is that the destination college you have selected has the necessary accreditations. This is ultra important, as it means that the training provided will be at par with the standards specified by regulated HVAC organizations.

You need to select that has at least one accreditation.

It is also important to try and find small class numbers, because then you will get one on one tuition from the program teachers. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science laboratory with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel of the place, the instruction rooms, the facilities available and talk to the teachers, if possible. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in organizing classes for employed students, and how you might go about requesting financial aid, if you are eligible.
