HVAC Second Career

When you decide to pick a HVAC college program, the most important point that you must ascertain is that your preferred destination college you have selected is an accredited one. This is an extremely important factor, since it means that the training program provided will be at least as good as specified by regulated HVAC organizations.

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 get personalized help from the program teachers. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science lab with professional-grade tools. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the instruction rooms, the facilities and talk to the teachers, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in organizing classes for students with external jobs, and also how you could go about requesting financial aid, if you might need it.
