Advancing Professionalism in On-Site Power

As part of its commitment to advancing professionalism within the On-Site 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 ideal. 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.

Our Technician Certification Committee made significant enhancements to the program in 2014 that include new branding for the program, an additional level of certification (Apprentice level), a revised exam for our previous test (Journeyman Level) and a higher passing score.
