EGSA George Rowley School of On-Site Power Generation

EGSA's Two-Tiered Power Schools

The Basic School is a general, but still technical, overview of On-Site Power Generation equipment. The Basic School is designed for those who are working in nontechnical positions (such as Sales or Marketing, Administrative, or Company Management positions) and for those with less than three years experience working in the industry.

In comparison to the Basic School, the Advanced School offers more highly technical and in-depth coverage of the equipment. The Advanced School is designed for those who have attended the EGSA Basic On-Site Power Generation School; those who are employed in Engineering, Project Management, or Service positions; and for those with over three years working in the industry.
