Medical Gas Certifications, Inc. (MGC) 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 MGC website was the ASSE 6040 Medical Gas Systems Maintenance Personnel Program launched on January 10, 2011. MGC now offers the ASSE 6005 Medical Gas Systems Generalist and the ASSE 6020 Medical Gas Systems Inspector certifications. MGC’s courses 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 Certifying Agency, which is a separate entity from the “training provider.”
Medical Gas Certifications, Inc. is 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 ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024: General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Personnel Programs, which is the international standard for these organizations.
These online training programs and the certifications that are provided by MGTI are in accordance with the ASSE 6000 Standard and meet the requirements of NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code and the NFPA 55: Compressed Gases and Cryogenic Fluids Code. The certifications are valid for three (3) years from issuance. Renewal of this certification can be accomplished by completing one of the approved recertification programs.
Medical Gas Certifications is partners with Medical Gas Training Institute (MGTI), a third party certification agency for the medical gas industry. MGTI offers testing and certification services for personnel involved in all areas of the industry. MGTI strives to improve the industry by offering high-quality certification services and maintaining exam content security while making the testing process as practical as possible.
