NFPA has launched a new online training course on medical gas and vacuum systems. The four-hour course provides a detailed review of the medical gas and vacuum requirements in the 2018 edition of NFPA 99, Health Care Facilities Code. It will satisfy criteria for ASSE 6000 series recertification, which requires a four-hour course on new editions to the code. The training also serves as an excellent overview for those looking to gain a greater understanding of the requirements for medical gas and vacuum systems.
The training addresses all topics in Chapter 5 of NFPA 99, including source requirements, valve requirements, installation specifics, installer performed test, and system verification. Changes to the 2018 edition are also addressed, including allowance for oxygen concentrator supply systems, changes to pressure regulation, and information on corrugated medical tubing as a permitted piping material.
