HVAC/r Career

When choosing a HVAC college program, the first thing that you must ascertain is that your preferred destination college you have chosen has the necessary accreditations. This is an extremely important factor, as it means that the training provided will be at the required standard specified by professional HVAC organizations.

The most prominent accrediting agencies for HVAC training programs is the National Center for Construction Education and Research, 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.

It is also important to try and find small class numbers, which means you will get one on one tuition from the program teachers. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an onsite science laboratory with professional-grade tools. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel of the place, the teaching areas, the overall facilities offered and talk to the teachers, if they are available. You should also find out whether they allow any flexibility in scheduling classes for working students, and how you should go about requesting financial aid, if you are eligible.
