Certification: Medical Gas Certification

Trained professionals who install, inspect verify and maintain medical gas systems are critical to medical procedures and patient health.

ASSE/IAPMO/ANSI Series 6000, the medical gas industry standard, provides jurisdictions and employers with a nationally recognized standard to use in confirming that individuals working on critically important medical gas systems possess the knowledge and experience required.

The Series 6000 provides uniform minimum requirements, based on NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code, for medical gas and vacuum systems personnel such as installers and inspectors. ASSE 6000 also gives uniform requirements for third-party certifiers who certify these professionals.

If you work in the medical gas field, or would like to expand your skills to work in this field, the Series 6000 is a necessity.
