Is this course for you?

This course is aimed at those who already have experience of medical gas pipeline systems, and are involved in the design or project management of MGPS. It is an advantage to have undertaken the Authorised Person course, however this is not essential. The ability to use Excel spread sheets is a requirement.

The course is suitable for:  existing AP’s, project managers, contractors, and consultants involved with MGPS installation.


The course is designed to enable suitably experienced personnel to design or check designs of MGPS systems as identified by HTM 02-01.


By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Define the requirements for terminal units, AVSU’s and line valves including their location as HTM 02-01
  • Interpret the requirements for alarm systems and locations as HTM 02-01
  • Apply the requirements of plant and pipe work installation as HTM 02-01
  • Apply the principles and algorithms in current guidance to the design of medical gas pipeline systems.
  • Apply the requirements of secondary supplies and other back-up systems

Delegates will require a copy of HTM 02-01 parts A & B, and should also bring a laptop or similar with excel spread sheet or similar, in the event that you do not have access to a laptop please speak to Eastwood Park prior to attending, as a loan laptop may be available.
