2017 Annual Meeting

12 hours of online training, at your own pace, between September and November. 3 hours of in-person classroom review and a 2-hour final examination on Friday, Nov. 10 in San Antonio.

Keep yourself safer, keep building occupants safer, and show your employer/clients that you can be trusted to work in hazardous environments.


Enroll in the ASSE 12000 infection control certification course, provided by IAPMO Training & Education, to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to help protect the health and safety of yourself, building occupants, building employees, and various facility operations from pathogens and other hazards that may be present in your workplace.

As more and more facilities, particularly heathcare facilities, begin requiring training and certification in infection control, ASSE 12000 certification will prove to be a valuable credential on your resume. This unique certification program educates and trains pipe trades craftspeople, and other construction and maintenance personnel, on how to more safely work in an environment with potential exposure to disease-causing pathogens. ASSE 12000 certification addresses the need for construction and maintenance personnel to become proficient in identifying and managing potential situations where they may be exposed to bloodborne, waterborne, and airborne pathogens. ASSE 12000 certification also covers the responsibility of personnel to protect building occupants and operations from pathogens and hazards; especially within healthcare facilities.
