- Maintain financial viability to ensure a strong EGSA future
- Develop programs that promote long-term membership value.
Programs That Benefit Members and the Industry
EGSA is best known for its on-site power generation schools, which provide a complete technical overview of on-site power systems. EGSA offers a two-tiered program with basic and advanced schools.
Designed for nontechnical personnel, the basic school provides a general overview of on-site power generation equipment. In comparison, the advanced school offers highly technical and in-depth coverage of the equipment and is intended for experienced and technical personnel.
EGSA is also recognized for offering the on-site power industry's only electrical generator systems technician certification program, created as part of EGSA's commitment to advancing professionalism within the on-site power industry. Through rigorous testing, the program identifies technicians who possess a broad knowledge of electricity, and of mechanical and electrical components and the interaction between them, and are proficient in the installation, service, maintenance, and repair of on-site power generation systems.
Finally, EGSA monitors the development of national standards concerning the use of on-site power equipment and technology, such as the National Electric Code (NEC). EGSA also has developed performance standards for equipment and components particular to its industry.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
