The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs is 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 at least one accreditation.
It is also important to try and find small class numbers, which means you will get personalized help from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an onsite science lab with modern equipment. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel for the place, the instruction rooms, the facilities and talk to the faculty, if they are available. Also find out whether they allow any flexibility in time-managing classes for employed students, and how you should go about procuring financial aid, if you are eligible.
