Medical Gas Certifications, Inc. was created to revolutionize the ASSE 6000 series medical gas training and certification programs by providing the courses 100% online. The first online course developed for the Medical Gas Certification (MGC) website was the ASSE 6040 Medical Gas Systems Maintenance Personnel Program launched in January 2011.
MGC now offers the ASSE 6005 Medical Gas Systems Generalist and the ASSE 6020 Medical Gas Systems Inspector certifications, along with renewals for any ASSE 6000 series certification. MGC’s programs were developed by Jonathan C. Willard, an ASSE 6050 & 6055 Certified Instructor and an MGPHO Credentialed Medical Gas Verifier (V-0135).
The ASSE 6000 Professional Qualification Standard for Medical Gas Systems Personnel requires that the individual certifications be issued and maintained by a Third Party Certification Agency, which is a separate entity from the “training provider.”
Medical Gas Certifications, Inc. is an approved training partner and the sole provider of the online training programs for the Medical Gas Training Institute (MGTI), which is a nationally and internationally recognized Third Party Certification Agency. MGTI is the premier medical gas personnel certifying agency and develops and maintains ALL of the ASSE 6000 certifications in accordance with the requirements of the ASSE 6000 Professional Qualification Standard for Medical Gas Systems Personnel and the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024: General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Personnel Programs, which is the international standard for these organizations.
