When it comes down to selecting a HVAC college program, the first thing that you must find out is that your preferred destination college you have chosen has the necessary accreditations. This is ultra important, as it means that the training program supplied will be at par with the standards specified by regulated HVAC organizations.

The premier accrediting agency for HVAC training programs are 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 assistance from the program teachers. A good HVAC college 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 instruction rooms, the facilities and talk to the faculty, if they are available. You should also find out whether there is any flexibility in organizing classes for working students, and also how you might go about researching financial aid, if required.
