RSES Members Awarded CM/CMS Status

 

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — RSES is proud to announce members who were awarded RSES Certificate Member (CM) and Certificate Member Specialist (CMS) status July through September 2014.

To become a CM, a RSES Member must first pass a rigorous examination that tests the knowledge required to install and service refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. CM-level members are recognized industry-wide as having achieved a superior level of HVACR knowledge. The RSES CM exam is based heavily on theory and practical applications.

The following RSES members passed the CM exam and were awarded CM status: Douglas Goldammer, CM, of the St. Louis Gateway Chapter, St. Louis; and Paul D. Murray, CM, of the Member at Large Chapter, Florida.

To obtain CMS status, a SM or RSES Member must first pass the CM examination. CMS status is earned by passing one or more of the eight Specialist examinations available. Specialist exam categories include: Commercial Refrigeration; Commercial Air Conditioning; Heating; Controls; Domestic Service; HVACR Electrical; Heat Pumps; and Dynamic Compression.

The following RSES members passed a CMS exam and were awarded CMS status:
