Several Eastern area members of the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) were awarded RSES Certificate Member (CM) and Certificate Member Specialist (CMS) status in the first quarter of 2007. These members had to pass a rigorous exam on the knowledge required to install and service refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

Joseph F. Badolato, of the Metropolitan N.Y. Chapter, New York, and Raul Valderama, of the Rochester Chapter, Rochester, N.Y., were awarded CM status.
