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.
Our 32-hour certification and 5-hour re-certification courses are based on the University of Florida TREEO book and testing procedures, and are approved by the Iowa Department of Public Health - list of approved courses shown here
Backflow Preventer Assembly Testing in Iowa is regulated by the Department of Public Health, and they require you to take a 32-hour course and pass the related practical and written exams by an approved school shown their list here, the license is good for 3 years, after which you have to take a 5-hour renewal course.
Our course includes all exams for the license. Like all other IDPH managed programs, there is an additional step where you have to register with IDPH as an account, and then apply our course to your account. There is a $72 registration fee required for the application process to obtain an Iowa Backflow Tester Registration, this goes directly to IDPH after we roster you as an attendee.
Our courses include the UF/ TREEO procedures, and there are many others available ( notably USC which is very similar to TREEO, and ASSE 5000 series which uses 1 hose only )
On our YouTube Channel, we created a series of videos where we test the four types of preventers using both types of procedures if you wanted to check out the differences:
