The premier accrediting agency 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. You MUST 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 help from the program teachers. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on college science laboratory with professional-grade tools. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the classroom, the overall facilities offered and talk to the teachers, if possible. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in scheduling classes for employed students, and how you might go about researching financial aid, if you might need it.
