RSES announced that the Building Performance Institute has approved three of its certification programs for HVAC contractors.

The former Refrigeration Service Engineers Society’s certificate member, certificate-member specialist and active specialized member programs are now recognized by the institute as an alternative to BPI’s courses for heating and cooling accreditation.

“RSES CM/CMS designations have been in use for more than 75 years proving the expertise of HVACR professionals,” said Patrick Murphy, the society’s director of training and testing. “Joining these designations with the building science world will allow RSES members the ability to expand their knowledge into whole house performance while being accredited to the BPI standard for making sure the house works as a system.”Top of Form
