The Compressed Gas Association’s new certification programme


The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) has formed a new entity, the CGA Certification Board LLC (CGACB), to offer personnel certification services for industrial and medical gases industry personnel.

Initially, the CGACB will offer certification to CGA M-1, Standard for Medical Gas Supply Systems at Health Care Facilities (an American National Standard).

“CGA is an ANSI accredited standard development organisation with more than 100 years of experience in setting the standard for industry safety” stated Rich Gottwald, CGA President and CEO. “We are excited to work with the CGACB to offer a certification programme that is based on our standards and specifically designed to address the unique considerations and hazards of our industry.”

The certifications evaluations are designed to assess a candidate’s practical knowledge and understanding of applicable regulations, codes, and standards; the evaluations also verify that an applicant’s company standard operating procedures conform to industry standards. CGACB’s certification will provide authorities, customers, and employers confidence that the individuals performing work on critical gas systems have been qualified through an independent assessment of their competencies.
