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. 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 receive personalized assistance from the program teachers. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on college science laboratory with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel of the place, the classroom, the facilities and talk to the senior lecturers, if possible. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in organizing classes for employed students, and how you should go about researching financial aid, if you are eligible.
