HVAC Bubbles In Sight Glass

When it comes down to selecting a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must find out is that your preferred choice of college you have selected has the necessary accreditations. This is an extremely important factor, since it means that the training program provided will be at least as good as specified by approved HVAC organizations.

The premier accrediting agency 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, because then you will get one to one help from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an on-campus science laboratory with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel of the place, the classroom, the facilities and talk to the faculty, if they are available. You should also find out if they provide any flexibility in scheduling classes for employed students, and how you could go about requesting financial aid, if you might need it.
