The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs is 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. You MUST select a college that has a minimum of at least one accreditation.
It is also important to try and find small class numbers, because then you will receive personalized attention 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 of the place, the teaching areas, the facilities and talk to the faculty, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in scheduling classes for employed students, and also how you should go about procuring financial aid, if required.
