HVAC Apprenticeship Sponsors

When choosing a HVAC college program, the first thing that you must find out is that your preferred choice of college you have selected has the necessary accreditations. We cannot stress this point highly enough, since it means that the training supplied will be at par with the standards 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, which means you will receive one on one tuition from the program teachers. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on-campus science lab with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel of the place, the classroom, the overall facilities offered and talk to the teachers, if they are available. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in organizing classes for employed students, and also how you should go about researching financial aid, if required.
