Medical Gas and Vacuum Piping Systems Installers Certification Course ASSE 6010
August 23 @ 8:00 am - August 26 @ 4:00 pm$1,195.00 – $1,610.00
Learn proper brazing techniques and requirements and gain knowledge in system installation for hospitals, office-based occupancies, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities.
NFPA has mandated brazing qualifications since 1993. The 2012 edition of NFPA 99 mandates that all installers meet the requirements of the A.S.S.E series 6010, 32-hour course. In addition, many major design firms now mandate compliance with the ANSI/A.S.S.E. 6000 series in their specifications. This is done typically in the same section of the spec that mandates compliance with the A.S.S.E 5000 series back flow prevention requirements.
- 32 hours of classroom instruction including brazing instruction and practice
- METC approved and proctored
- Meets ASSE 6010 requirements
Each student brazing will need to provide the following material:
- 4’ of 1-1/2” L tubing. This need not be cleaned for oxygen service. Ordinary ASTM B88 water tube is acceptable. Scrap tubing can be used if it is clean inside and not dented.
- 6 – 8 1-1/2” wrought couplings with stops. Not cleaned is OK.
- Approximately 1 pound of 5% silver solder BCuP
- Any safety equipment you ordinarily use such as goggles, gloves, etc. We will use vise tri-stands for setting up our brazing assemblies and cutting tubing samples bring them with you to practice for the final examination.
Note: The above material can be combined if more than one person is coming from the same shop. For instance, if five people are coming from one shop, they could combine tubing requirements and come up with 1 20’ length of tubing.
Students will be required to successfully complete a written examination as well as a brazing practical in which you will be required to braze vertical and horizontal full penetrating joints on 1 ½” tubing. The brazing coupons will be tested by a C.W.I at a laboratory.
