The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society has reached an agreement with the Pennsylvania College of Technology to provide college credits for students who have completed its training courses.

Students who successfully complete the specified training courses will receive 53 credits toward a bachelor of science in HVAC design technology from the college’s School of Construction & Design Technologies. 

“We are excited to sign this agreement with Pennsylvania College of Technology,” said Roger Henley, RSES educational and examining board chairman. “It provides an excellent opportunity for our members and acknowledges that they can now earn college credit for RSES training. No matter where you may have successfully completed the RSES training modules, you can apply to enter into the HVAC design technology B.S. degree at PCT.”

Tom F. Gregory, Pennsylvania College of Technology’s associate vice president, said the RSES training courses are beneficial to technicians who are seeking to excel in the field.

“It is important that technicians wishing to add to their knowledge and skills be able to gain recognition and acknowledgement of their accomplishments,” he said. “Being able to apply the RSES education modules to an advanced degree can significantly benefit technicians desiring to advance in the industry.”
