HVAC Career Forum

When it comes down to selecting a HVAC college program, the first thing that you must ascertain is that the destination college you have chosen is an accredited one. We cannot stress this point highly enough, since it means that the training imparted will be at par with the standards specified by regulated HVAC organizations.

The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs are the National Center for Construction Education and Research, 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. Select a college that has at least one accreditation.

Smaller class sizes are also important, which means you will receive personalized help from the program teachers. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science lab with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the instruction rooms, the facilities available and talk to the senior lecturers, if possible. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in time-managing classes for working students, and how you should go about procuring financial aid, if you are eligible.
