The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES), Des Plaines, IL, has announced the names of members who were awarded RSES Active Specialized Member, Certificate Member and Certificate Member Specialist status in March 2009.

SM status is earned by passing one or more of the following eight Specialist examinations available: Commercial Refrigeration; Commercial Air Conditioning; Heating; Controls; Domestic Service; HVACR Electrical; Heat Pumps; and Dynamic Compression. Members with an SM title, who are interested in attaining CMS status, can take a CM examination at anytime. After passing the CM examination their membership status will be upgraded to a CMS.

The following RSES members passed the SM exam in March 2009 and were awarded SM status:
