HVAC Second Career

When you decide to pick a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must find out is that the destination college you have chosen has the necessary accreditations. This is an extremely important factor, as it means that the training imparted will be at par with the standards specified by approved HVAC organizations.

The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs are 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 a minimum of at least one accreditation.

It is also important to try and find small class numbers, because then you will get one on one assistance from the program teachers. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science laboratory with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel of the place, the classroom, the facilities available and talk to the teachers, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in time-managing classes for working students, and also how you could go about requesting financial aid, if you might need it.
