The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs are 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. You MUST select a college that has a minimum of at least one accreditation.
Smaller class sizes are also important, because then you will receive personalized assistance 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 classroom, the overall facilities offered and talk to the senior lecturers, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in scheduling classes for students with external jobs, and also how you might go about procuring financial aid, if you might need it.
