Course Description

Become a BCWWA Certified Backflow Assembly Tester

This course is for plumbers, pipefitters, sprinkler fitters, and steam fitters and others involved in the installation, maintenance, and testing of back flow prevention devices. Participants will learn the hydraulic principles of backflow and the testing of backflow prevention assemblies. Successful completion provides certification through the BC Water & Waste Association (BCWWA). Test sessions for BCWWA are conducted on the last Saturday of the course.
