The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs is 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, which means you will receive personalized help from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an on-campus science laboratory with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel of the place, the instruction rooms, the overall facilities offered and talk to the teachers, if they are available. Also find out whether there is any flexibility in scheduling classes for working students, and also how you should go about procuring financial aid, if required.
