Designed to help participants understand backflow and recognize cross-connections, this one-credit course places special emphasis on preparing individuals to test, inspect, and provide in-line maintenance of reduced pressure principle backflow prevention devices, double check valve assemblies, and pressure vacuum breakers. The course is for plumbing, mechanical, and fire suppression contractors, city building and plumbing officials, public utilities inspectors, water and wastewater personnel, health department officials, and engineers.

This class satisfies the minimum 16 hour education requirement to “sit” for the state exam, to accompany the minimum 7 years of work experience “in a water distribution system” requirement (to be verified by the applicant’s employers).
