Michael Puckett, Midwest
Technical Institute, Earns CMHE.
to Michael Puckett of Midwest Technical Institute, Brownsburg, IN,
for having the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator, "CMHE"
bestowed upon him by HVAC Excellence.
The foundation for building a great p rogram begins with having:
text books, software, assessments, equipment, trainers, tools and
test instruments. However, at the end of the day the most important
asset of an HVACR program is the instructor and the quality of any
program is only as good as the instructor chosen to lead it.
To enable HVACR instructors to verify the depth of their knowledge
and ability to relate subject matter effectively, HVAC Excellence
developed specialized educator credentialing exams called Certified
Subject Matter Educator "CSME". These exams validate an HVACR
instructor has mastered the subject matter to teach the competencies
in their curriculum. The Capstone exam (CORE) covers technical
education methodologies and principles and practices, and attests to
an instructor's pedagogical skills.
