The premier accrediting agency 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. Select a college that has at least one accreditation.
It is also important to try and find small class numbers, which means you will receive one to one assistance from the program teachers. The best colleges teaching HVAC courses will also have an onsite science lab with professional-grade tools. Visit the campus and get a feel for the place, the teaching areas, the facilities available and talk to the teachers, if they are available. Also find out if they provide any flexibility in time-managing classes for students with external jobs, and also how you could go about procuring financial aid, if you are eligible.
