Seminar Description:

Learn proper brazing techniques and requirements and about 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 requires that all installers meet the requirements of the A.S.S.E series 6010, a 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 typically done in the same section of the spec that requires compliance with the A.S.S.E 5000 series backflow prevention requirements.

Course Specifics:

  • 32 hours of classroom instruction, including brazing instruction and practice
  • METC-approved and proctored
  • Meets ASSE 6010 requirements

Prerequisite: Contractor employees must be journeyperson level, or active in an apprenticeship program for at least four years. Estimators, hospital employees who will not install medical gas systems, and building officials/inspectors are welcome into the class with the four-year minimum waived.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Discover safe practices for medical gas pipeline equipment installation.
  • Gain hands-on training to further your understanding.
  • Receive Med Gas 6010 certification upon successful completion of written test and brazing.

Our Members Say It Best:

“This training was beneficial in explaining and understanding the critical components of a medical gas system and pipeline.”
– Norm Shaffer, Spangler & Boyer Mechanical, Inc.

“The information received in this course has not only educated me on proper installation and testing of medical gas systems, but it also has enlightened me as to the personal responsibility for the safety of human life.”
– Don R. Crutcher, Frey Lutz Corp.

Registrant Information:

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. An 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 to set up our brazing assemblies and cut tubing samples. Bring them with you to practice for the final examination.

Note: The above material can be combined if more than one person comes from the same shop. For instance, if five people are coming from one shop, they could combine tubing requirements and create 1 20’ length of tubing.

Students will be required to complete a written examination and 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.
