HVAC Apprenticeship Sponsors

When you decide to pick a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must find out is that your preferred destination college you have chosen is an accredited one. This is ultra important, since it means that the training program provided will be at par with the standards specified by regulated HVAC organizations.

The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs is 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, which means you will get personalized help from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an on-campus science lab 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 overall facilities offered and talk to the teachers, if possible. Also find out whether there is any flexibility in time-managing classes for working students, and also how you might go about requesting financial aid, if you are eligible.
