The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs are 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 a minimum of at least one accreditation.
It is also important to try and find small class numbers, because then you will get personalized help from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on-campus science laboratory with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel of the place, the instruction rooms, the facilities and talk to the faculty, if possible. Also find out whether they allow any flexibility in scheduling classes for working students, and also how you should go about requesting financial aid, if you are eligible.
