The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs is the National Center for Construction Education and Research, 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 at least one accreditation.
Smaller class sizes are also important, because then you will receive 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 for the place, the classroom, the overall facilities offered and talk to the faculty, if they are available. Also find out whether they allow any flexibility in organizing classes for employed students, and how you might go about requesting financial aid, if you might need it.
