HVAC Apprenticeship

When you decide to pick a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must ascertain is that the destination college you have chosen is an accredited one. This is an extremely important factor, since it means that the training supplied will be at least as good as specified by approved HVAC organizations.

The most prominent accrediting agencies 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 one to one help from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an on-campus science laboratory with professional-grade tools. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the teaching areas, the overall facilities offered and talk to the teachers, if possible. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in scheduling classes for students with external jobs, and also how you should go about procuring financial aid, if you might need it.
