Refrigeration Service Engineers Society
Twin Cities Chapter

The REFRIGERATION SERVICE ENGINEERS SOCIETY was founded in 1933 as a non-profit educational society. Its fundamental mission was to provide superior technical education and training to hvac/r technicians. Today that mission is as strong as ever.
RSES International provides:
  • Educational meetings, seminars, and workshops
  • Training classes and home study paths technicians can follow.
  • Publishes the Service Application Manual (SAM). The industries finest source for hvac/r information.
    (Available on CD and in printed form)
  • RSES Journal, its own monthly trade magazine free to members.

  • We hold educational meetings on the third Tuesday of each month starting in September and going thru May. Generally they are held at the Fort Snelling Officers Club, starting at 7:00 pm. Check out our newsletter for up-to-date information.
RSES International:
  • For 75 years, RSES has offered educational and certification programs to HVACR professionals of all experience levels. As the leading provider of educational meetings, seminars and workshops, RSES also provides technical examination programs and training courses for service professionals working on heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration systems across the nation. RSES members work in a wide variety of HVACR-related jobs. Air conditioning, refrigeration, warm-air heating and ventilation are four of the more obvious sectors in which RSES members perform their trade. But RSES also has members who represent the piping, ice machine, hydronic heating, energy management, building automation, sheet-metal fabrication and indoor air quality service markets. RSES' website is designed to provide members with the information they need to better serve their customers, while also explaining to the consumers why an RSES-trained technician is better equipped to service their HVACR systems. The website is instrumental in showing the value of RSES membership to HVACR service professionals and those seeking a new career in the industry.
