National Inspection Testing and Certification Corporation (NITC) was happy to participate at the MGPHO Conference on October 3, 2017, in Las Vegas, Nevada. NITC is a third-party provider of certification services to the Piping Industry. We test and certify personnel in the Medical Gas, Plumbing, Pipefitting, HVACR, Fire Protection & Safety Systems and related industries.

In this letter we want to highlight the Series 6000 Standard of the American Society of Sanitary Engineering (ASSE) and, in particular, ASSE’s Medical Gas Maintenance Personnel 6040 certification.

The Series 6000 Standard is the industry benchmark for medical gas systems personnel. ASSE’s Medical Gas Maintenance Personnel 6040 certification provides municipalities and employers alike with qualified individuals who have successfully demonstrated competencies within the field of medical gas maintenance.

In order to be certified, medical gas maintenance personnel are required to be proficient in, and experienced with, the maintenance of medical gas and vacuum systems. They must have a general knowledge of applicable laws, codes, listing agencies, and/or regulations at the federal, state, and local level as they pertain to medical gas and vacuum systems. Medical Gas Maintenance Personnel also possess knowledge of product performance, systems and system-component testing, documenting and recording, and medical gas terminology.

Candidates seeking their Medical Gas Maintenance Personnel 6040 certification will want to ally themselves with an organization that has the knowledge and the reputation to properly administer and certify personnel. NITC is that organization.

Whether you are an employer or a trades professional, NITC is here to help advise you along the way. Contact us at (888) 234-6834 or visit to learn more about how NITC helps prepare the most qualified, most reliable, and safest trade professionals possible thanks to our wide selection of industry certifications.
