HVAC Excellence Honors Educator

September 24, 2012
HVAC Excellence has announced that the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) has been conferred on Jack Hossink of Central Carolina Technical College in Sumter, S.C.

Hossink served in the Vietnam War with the U.S. Navy. When he returned home, he embarked on a career in the HVACR industry after completing his apprenticeship training with the United Association and graduating with honors from Ferris State University. He operated his own business for 26 years. He then became an instructor at Central Carolina Technical College. Among his recognitions is the title of Air Conditioning Specialist CMS, a technician certification from the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES).

To have the title of CMHE from HVAC Excellence conferred upon him, he had to pass six of the educator exams: electrical; air conditioning; light commercial air conditioning; light commercial refrigeration; electric heat; and either gas heat, oil heat, or heat pumps. In addition, an instructor must pass the capstone exam which covers technical education methodologies, principles, and practices.

Hossink is the first HVACR instructor in the state of South Carolina to have the title of CMHE.
