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.
To verify the depth of an instructor's knowledge and ability to relate the subject matter effectively, HVACR educators take Certified Subject Matter Educator (CSME) exams developed by HVAC Excellence.
CMSE is conferred upon those who have met their State's requirements for instructors and the standards of competency in a specific subject (e.g. Certified Heat Pump Educator).
In order to have the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator (CMHE) conferred upon them, an instructor needs to successfully pass the following CSME exams: electrical, air conditioning, light commercial air conditioning, light commercial refrigeration, electric heat and either gas heat, oil heat or heat pumps. Additionally, an instructor must pass the Capstone exam which covers technical education methodologies, principles, and practices, which attest to their pedagogical skills.
