The most prominent accrediting agencies 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 at least one accreditation.
Smaller class sizes are also important, which means you will receive personalized attention from the program teachers. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on-campus science lab with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the instruction rooms, the overall facilities offered and talk to the faculty, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in scheduling classes for employed students, and also how you could go about procuring financial aid, if required.
