    Quick question: Can you take a CMS exam without having a CM certification? Or do you have to have a CM first?

    I'm just thinking about taking a CMS (Heat Pump) to increase my odds of passing. I know on the CMS you need 80% to pass.

    This is due to my lack of experience in a few of the CM categories: Such as oil burners and boilers.

    Brent.
    Yes there is another certification just for that reason.

    It is the exact same CMS heat pump exam.

    But you have to be a CM to take a CMS, correct?

    And I see that there is a SM certification available. I just don't feel like it carries the same weight as a CM or CMS.

    Or is this just my imagination?

    I personally believe it does.

    The CM is very difficult and covers a lot of stuff.

    If you take SM/CMS heat pump exam
    You can take CM Later.

    You can take any of the specialized tests without being a cm. If you pass you become a sm. If and when you pass the cm you become a cms I believe.

    That's good! I took the NATE heat pump test with no prior studying and got something like 98% right! If you pass a NATE test it's not much to brag about....

    LOL!
    NATE exams have some good stuff on them and I think there are thousands of mechanics that would not pass it!

    i think NATE is pretty good, just compared to RSES it is like an NFL team playing a Pop Warner team!!!!!!!!
