The premier accrediting agency 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.
It is also important to try and find small class numbers, which means you will get one to one attention from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an on-campus science laboratory with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the classroom, the overall facilities offered and talk to the senior lecturers, if they are available. Also find out whether there is any flexibility in scheduling classes for employed students, and how you could go about requesting financial aid, if required.
