For almost 50 years, the Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA) has been on the cutting edge of generated power solutions. Providing codes and standards updates, emerging technologies, education, best practices, technician certification, and industry enrichment, we are the leading authority in the on-site power industry.

EGSA represents more than 800 members worldwide. We manufacture, distribute, market, sell, install, maintain, and service on-site power equipment. Our trade association is poised to help people and organizations like yours meet ever-increasing business demands for emergency power solutions, while balancing those demands with cost, safety, security, and technology.

Programs that benefit members, the industry, and you

Our EGSA Technician Certification Program is the industry benchmark that provides organizations like yours with an objective way to gauge if someone is qualified to work on your system. Making this certification a part of your business plan is a smart investment and a great benefit to generator customers. It not only demonstrates proficiency, but it also certifies that a technician has attained sufficient levels of skill, knowledge, and expertise to work on your complex, sensitive equipment. We hope you remember this when it comes time to install, maintain, and service your clients’ systems and that you specifically ask for an EGSA-Certified Technician.

EGSA also offers a rigorous, two-tiered educational program with schools throughout the U.S. that outline the technical aspects of power generation. Explore our Basic and Advanced Power School curriculums, taught by leading industry experts (with Continuing Education Units available) to keep your skills sharp and to stay abreast of the technologies that support the power generation industry.

Finally, we also give back to the industry with EGSA’s David I. Coren Scholarship Program. Since the program’s launch in 2002, EGSA has granted a total of 99 scholarships to students pursuing a career in power generation. The benefits of this program are immeasurable, not only increasing personal knowledge and earning power, but also increasing their value to employers within our own industry.

We actively encourage and promote the exchange of ideas and information. Please visit www.egsa.org for details of our programs and initiatives, or contact our staff at 561-750-5575.
