RSES Members Awarded CMS Status in March

The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) announced the names of members who were awarded RSES Certificate Member (CM) and Certificate Member Specialist (CMS) status in March 2008.

In order 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. According to RSES, CM-level members are recognized industry-wide as having achieved a superior level of HVACR knowledge. The RSES CM exam is based on both theory and practical applications.

To obtain CMS status, a 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 in March 2008 and were awarded CMS status: Richard D. Dorssom, CMS, of the Pony Express Chapter, St. Joseph, Mo., passed the exam in HVACR electrical; Frank E. Ihrer, CMS, of the Greater Kansas City Chapter, Kansas City, Mo., passed the exam in HVACR electrical; Rolf J. Blom, CMS, of the Twin Cities Chapter, Minneapolis, passed the exam in domestic service; and Nicholas R. Cress, CMS, of the Twin Cities Chapter, Minneapolis, passed the exam in domestic service.

The CM/CMS exam series originated in 1935. For additional information, contact the Educational Branch of RSES by calling 800-297-5660 or 847-297-6464, or by faxing 847-297-5038.
