The program's emphasis is on hazards, devices,  and testing. It is designed for those already involved with the planning, design, installation, maintenance, and inspection of plumbing, piping systems, or water-supplied equipment that connects to the potable water system, either inside or outside of buildings. The pressure differential between the two systems may cause contaminated or polluted fluids to flow through connections with no control, ultimately changing the quality of the potable water. Reversal of flow in the water may be unpredictable. Backflow education and training will help you to effectively combat all actual and potential types of cross-connections.

Course length:30 hours (4 days) of theory & practical instruction.  Successful completion of both written & practical exams is required to receive your AWWA Cross Connection Control Specialist  Tester Certificate. Qualifies for the Sask Job Grant*
