Certifications

Electrical Generating Systems Association Certified Technicians

As part of its commitment to advancing professionalism within the Standby Power industry, EGSA has created the Electrical Generator Systems Technician Certification Program. Certification of personnel has become the hallmark of many industries in the United States today for one simple reason: It helps advance the profession by identifying consistent standards through which proficiency can be determined.

EGSA Technician Certification demonstrates a commitment to that idea. Through rigorous testing, the program will identify those technicians who not only have a broad knowledge of electricity, mechanical and electrical components and the interaction between them, but are proficient in the installation, service, maintenance, and repair of On-Site Power generation systems.

Environmental Protection Agency Certified Lead-Safe Firm

EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP Rule) requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 have their firm certified by EPA (or an EPA authorized state), use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
