Terry L. Robinson Certified Master HVACR Educator
HVAC Excellence is pleased announce that the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) has been conferred upon Mr. Terry L. Robinson of Lincoln College of Technology in Grand Prairie, TX.
Technicians with several years of experience in the HVACR field can take a variety of topical technician certifications from a number of organizations. However, when a seasoned professional elects to transition into the world of education, they are expected to have a better understanding of the technologies and the theory that supports them than a technician in the field or the students they will serve.
HVAC Excellence recognizes that a program is only as good as the quality of the instructor. To enable instructors to verify the depth of their knowledge and ability to relate subject matter effectively, HVAC Excellence developed specialized educator credentialing exams.
To validate that HVACR instructors have mastered their subject matter, they take Certified Subject Matter Educator (CSME) exams. CMSE is conferred upon those who have met their State's requirements for instructors and the standards of competency in a specific subject as established by HVAC Excellence (e.g. "Certified Heat Pump Educator").
In order to have the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) conferred an instructor needs to successfully pass the following CSME exams with a score of 80% or higher.
The exams are: Electrical, Air Conditioning, Light Commercial Air Conditioning, Light Commercial Refrigeration, Electric Heat and either Gas Heat, Oil Heat or Heat Pumps. Additionally, to earn the title of CMHE an instructor must pass the Capstone exam which covers technical education methodologies, principles, and practices, which attest to their pedagogical skills.
Passing any one of these exams is quite an accomplishment, however to earn the designation of CMHE a person must pass seven of them. Over the years HVAC Excellence has administered thousands of credentialing exams, yet Terry Robinson in only the fortieth instructor to successfully pass enough exams to have the title of CMHE conferred upon him.
The Certified Master HVACR Educator credential is a terminal certification and the highest credential that can be conferred upon an HVACR educator. Having this title bestowed upon them is a great accomplishment and helps their students know that their career is on the right path as quality training begins with a great instructor.
Having served his country honorably in Viet Nam for the United States Air Force, Terry Robinson went on to receive his formal training in HVACR from Cedar Valley College in Dallas, TX. After years of hard work in the field, Terry has spent the last fifteen years preparing the next generation of HVACR technicians as an instructor with the Lincoln College of Technology.
Terry Robinson stated that those who teach, need to teach passionately, and after years of industry training and experience, becoming a CMHE validates my passion for teaching others about the HVACR industry. Terry. L. Robinson, CMHE.
