No course or exam scheduled in your area ? Our motto is "We Are Where You Are" meaning we try to service local areas as well as possible. We have two additional programs available, links to more info below:
Private Course - We can come to your location and train only your staff, bring all props, handouts, equipment, etc., Minimum of 10 students
Host a Course - Similar to a private course, we come to your facility and train your staff, but also you allow other local technicians to attend. No minimums for these and you get 2 free students.
In Florida, there is no state level agency that regulates backflow assembly testing, so it is up to the discretion of the water districts. Water districts in general accept most backflow tester courses, there are a wide variety of them and many do not hold any accreditations, but some may have preferences or require TREEO or AWWA accreditation, if you have a question about whether your local water district would accept our current course version, feel free to reach out via email or phone ( top of the website ). Our 32-hour Certification program is also approved in Georgia and acceptable to ABPA or AWWA for their 3rd party exams which require USC 10th Edition Procedures.
Our 32-hour course is based on the USC (University of Southern California) 10th edition textbook and course materials. We have reached out to some of the certifying agencies that have relationships with water purveyors and water districts in the state, and will likely have some more formal approvals in the coming months as the program is set up, but currently we just have our course certified through ABPA and AWWA as their test prep for their 3rd party exams, but in Florida most backflow schools offer single party exams and as long as criteria and length. ABPA is pretty widespread in the USA and would definitely be accepted by any of them. More info on how to prepare for and schedule for a 3rd party exam ( if required ) can be found on our Exam Prep Page
On our YouTube Channel, we created a series of videos where we test the four types of preventers using both USC 10th Edition and ASSE 5000 procedures if you wanted to check out the differences. Our Florida program specifically utilizes the USC 10th Edition using a 2 valve test kit, but if testing in the field in Florida the ASSE 5000 Single Hose Procedures should also be acceptable:
