HVAC/r Career

When it comes down to selecting a HVAC college program, the first thing that you must ascertain is that the choice of college you have chosen is an accredited one. We cannot stress this point highly enough, since it means that the training provided will be at par with the standards specified by HVAC organizations.

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 at least one accreditation.

Smaller class sizes are also important, which means you will receive personalized attention from the instructors. A good HVAC college will also have an on-campus science lab with modern equipment. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the instruction rooms, the overall facilities offered and talk to the faculty, if possible. Also find out whether there is any flexibility in organizing classes for working students, and how you could go about researching financial aid, if you are eligible.
