Rolling Meadows, Ill. -- July 12, 2018

RSES augments its CEH Corner with two courses in the online store. This program provides a quick, convenient opportunity to earn one continuing education hour (CEH) per course by simply reading an article in RSES Journal and answering a few questions online.

These courses are designed to assess an individual’s understanding of technical articles that were printed in RSES Journal. The latest courses include the feature “Common Air Measurement Misapplications,” as published in the June 2018 issue. The second course assesses comprehension of the article “Psychrometrics: Understanding How to Use It on the Job,” printed in the July 2018 issue of RSES Journal.

In addition, two webinars have been uploaded to our eLearning library: “Smartphone and Wireless Tools Are Changing the AC/R Measurement Game,” presented by Bill Spohn; and “VRF Sequence of Operation,” featuring Bill Artis. As always, members can watch it live or in the archives anytime, but to earn one CEH all technicians must purchase it for $10 through the online store. To obtain credit, simply watch the webinar and take a short quiz that can be found under the eLearning tab on and click on “RSES Member Webinars” to locate the June and July 2018 webinars.
