MT. PROSPECT, Ill. - John Murray, an associate professor of HVACR at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, Calif., not only earned his credentials, but he also became HVAC Excellence’s 75,000th certification recipient. Murray pursued the status of Certified Subject Matter Educator (CSME) in several disciplines and has successfully passed the Gas Heat, Heat Pump, and Light Commercial Exams.

To make certain that the faculty at the College of the Desert continually update its skills and adapt to new technologies, the school sent Murray to the National HVACR Educators and Trainers Conference in Las Vegas. The conference gave him a multitude of continuing education sessions and the opportunity to take many of the HVAC Excellence certifications.

“I understand that my students’ success is dependent upon the level of training I provide them,” said Murray.
