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 get one to one tuition from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science laboratory with professional-grade tools. Visit the campus and get a feel of the place, the teaching areas, the facilities available and talk to the senior lecturers, if they are available. Also find out whether they allow any flexibility in scheduling classes for students with external jobs, and also how you might go about researching financial aid, if required.
