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.

Specialist exam categories include: commercial refrigeration, commercial air conditioning, heating, controls, domestic service, HVACR electrical, heat pumps and dynamic compression.
