The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs are 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. Select a college that has a minimum of at least one accreditation.
Smaller class sizes are also important, which means you will get one on one attention from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses 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 teaching areas, the facilities and talk to the faculty, if they are available. You should also find out whether they allow any flexibility in scheduling classes for students with external jobs, and how you could go about procuring financial aid, if you are eligible.
