This three-day advanced course is for individuals currently holding Backflow Assembly Tester certification. Time is spent both in the classroom and the working lab. This advanced course provides the experienced tester with hands-on experience in the repair and maintenance of large diameter backflow preventers from various manufacturers. Instructors discuss advanced testing, trouble-shooting and safety procedures.

You must hold a current Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester Certification to attend this class.
 If your Backflow Assembly Tester Certification is from an organization other than the TREEO Center, you must provide a copy of that certification upon registration. If you cannot provide proof of certification your registration will not be processed.
Special Note: If you take the Backflow Prevention Assembly Repair and Maintenance Training and Certification course during the same year you are due for re-certification, this qualifies as taking the re-certification exam for only $100, which is a $100 savings if you had planned to take the review option.
Daily breaks are scheduled. You are on your own for lunch.
