The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs is the NCCEA, 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. Select a college that has at least one accreditation.
Smaller class sizes are also important, which means you will receive one on one tuition from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an onsite science laboratory with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the instruction rooms, the facilities available and talk to the teachers, if they are available. Also find out whether there is any flexibility in time-managing classes for employed students, and also how you might go about procuring financial aid, if you might need it.
