Medical Gas Basics [ASSE 6005], Online (Live Webinar), November 27-29


This class is conducted by an ASSE 6050 Medical Gas Instructor, intended for any person with an interest in medical gas and vacuum systems and equipment, and meets the requirements of completing twenty-four (24) hours of training covering basic facets of piped medical gas and medical-surgical vacuum systems.  NFPA 99 and ASSE 6005 documents are provided and used in this course to provide general knowledge of medical gas and vacuum systems.

For National accreditation:  After completion of this course, a separate exam must be scheduled (at an additional cost) at a CBT (computer based testing) location near you, or conducted by a National Inspection, Testing, and Certification Corporation (NITC) Proctor at your location, then graded by NITC. Upon a passing grade, the student would receive a National ASSE 6005 Medical Gas Generalist accreditation.

Refer to this Candidate Bulletin  for ADDITIONAL EXAM PRICING and student qualification requirements, and to this Medical Gas Generalist exam application.

If a National accreditation is not needed, the NITC exam (and associated additional costs) would not be required. A Winn’s CE Medical Gas Generalist certificate would be issued instead, at no additional cost.

Note: This certification does not qualify a person to install, maintain, repair, verify, inspect, or replace Med Gas systems. Additional certifications or licenses are required for those activities.

This course is excellent as an introduction to Medical Gas systems, as well as Estimating or Construction Superintendent personnel, etc.  It is also approved for 2.40 CEU credits (Preferred Provider) by the International Code Council, Course #25457.
