Michael Puckett, Midwest Technical Institute, Earns CMHE.

Congratulations 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.
