Power Generation Endorsement

The CUSP Power Generation endorsement includes work at conventional generation plants which burn fossil fuel, such as coal or natural gas or use water for hydro electric generation. This includes a wide breadth of overlapping work environments for maintenance and construction on infrastructure which supports the operation of the generating facility.

About the Endorsement:

  • The Power Generation endorsement is one of five endorsement exams that are offered to CUSP candidates. The others are Gas, Civil, Electric Transmission and Distribution and Utility Line Clearance Arborist.
  • The Power Generation endorsement is for safety professionals performing work at conventional generation plants which burn fossil fuel, such as coal or natural gas or use water for hydro electric generation. This work involves a wide breadth of overlapping work environments for maintenance and construction on infrastructure which supports the operation of the generating facility.
  • CUSP’s with a Generation endorsement will be familiar with hazards and controls for chemical releases, minimum approach distance, lock out/tag out, hot work, motorized equipment, fall protection, high angle rescue, walking and working surfaces and confined spaces as well as other related hazards. Operations may include exposure to transmission lines and cables, substations, railroad and barge terminals.
  • Generation facilities often have multiple contractors working within the facility. The frequent use of contractors requires a working knowledge of host employers’ responsibilities such as information transfer and multi-employer worksites.
  • Individuals that have already earned their CUSP credential can add the Civil endorsement to their certification.
