Technician Certification

As part of its commitment to advancing professionalism within the On-Site Power industry, EGSA has created the Electrical Generator Systems Technician Certification Program. 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.

Technician Certification is available in two levels:

  • Apprentice - The Apprentice level exam provides technical college students, recent graduates, military personnel and other 1st or 2nd-year technicians with proof that the basic skill set has been met (certification valid for 3 years).
  • Journeyman - A passing grade on our Journeyman exam assures an employer that this technician meets or exceeds 3 years of practical field experience. This exam tests in 61 individual areas of expertise (certification valid for 5 years).
