The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs are 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. Select a college that has a minimum of at least one accreditation.
Smaller class sizes are also important, because then you will get one on one assistance from the instructors. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an onsite science lab with professional-grade tools. Before enrolling make sure you visit and explore the campus and get a feel of the place, the classroom, the facilities available and talk to the faculty, if they are available. You should also find out whether they allow any flexibility in scheduling classes for students with external jobs, and also how you might go about procuring financial aid, if required.
