Eugene Silberstein Certified Master HVACR Educator

Eugene Silberstein Certified Master HVACR EducatorProfessor Eugene Silberstein of Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, New York has had the title of Certified Master HVACR Educator “CMHE” conferred upon him.

Everyone is a benefactor or victim of training! American companies will grow or die due to the quality of training their recruits receive. The administration at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood, NY can hold their heads high as they have one of the best HVACR instructors in the country. 

Professor Eugene Silberstein has been involved in all aspects of the HVACR industry for over 25 years. His experience includes; field technician, system designer, contractor, teacher, administrator, consultant and author. He is presently the discipline leader and professor of HVACR Associates of Applied Sciences program on the Michael J. Grant Campus of Suffolk County Community College in Bentwood, New York. 

To add to already impressive and extensive credentials, Professor Silberstein is author of “Heat Pumps and Residential Construction Academy” and Co-author of the industry leading text book “Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technology”, both published by Delmar Cengage Learning (http://www.cengage.com/delmar).

Professor Silberstein has an impressive resume that most others would want to emulate, however he wanted to make certain he was preparing his students at the highest level possible. To accomplish this, he decided to pursue educator credentialing. 

Credentialing is a method to verify that teachers are capable of teaching the competencies within their curriculum. On the surface this seems fairly straight forward and simple. However, students are taught English from kindergarten through their senior year in high school, yet 70% of college freshman take remedial English courses. 
The title of Certified Master HVACR Educator “CMHE” is not easily attained, as the person must achieve a passing score of 80% or better on six Certified Subject Matter Educator “CSME” exams. In addition, the instructor must pass the Capstone exam which covers technical education methodologies. 

Credentialing exams are terminal certifications. We expect our nation’s educators to know more than their students or the person working in the field. As such, a credentialing exam is much more difficult to pass than student assessments or technician certifications in the same field. 

HVAC Excellence a not for profit agency is proud to announce that the title of Certified Master HVACR instructor (CMHE) can now be added to Professor Silberstein’s already impressive resume. This is a tremendous accomplishment for Professor Silberstein as earning the status of CMHE is no easy feat. Since the programs inception, hundreds of exams have been administered, however a select group of people have successfully passed all of the exams and have the title CMHE conferred upon them. 

HVAC Excellence commends Eugene Silberstein “CMHE” (Certified Master Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Educator) as he has demonstrated his technical knowledge and pedagogical skills necessary to impart this information to his students.
