The American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) announced that ASPE is collaborating with medical gas expert Mark Allen to develop a medical gas system design training course.

This 32-hour course will be based on the parameters outlined in ASSE 6060: Medical Gas Systems Designer, a new professional qualification standard that sets forth the training requirements for designers who wish to earn the ASSE 6060 personnel certification. Those who complete the course will receive a certificate of training and will have fulfilled the training requirements to take the ASSE 6060 certification exam.

When the course has been developed, it will be offered as an in-person workshop taught by Allen, who is vice president of Atlas Copco Medical Gas Solutions Division. 

More information on course scheduling will be available next year. With questions, please email
