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.
Smaller class sizes are also important, which means you will receive personalized assistance from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on-campus science lab with professional-grade tools. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the classroom, the facilities available and talk to the faculty, if they are available. Also find out whether they allow any flexibility in organizing classes for students with external jobs, and how you should go about procuring financial aid, if you might need it.
