We hold an approval through the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection - Drinking Water Program, Cross Connection Control Program (MassDEP-DWP-CCCP) which is the state agency that regulates the water purveyors and many times reviews the backflow test reports. Our course includes 32 hours of training to learn how to do the tests, and on the final day we include the MassDEP-DWP-CCCP approved written and practical exams which are both prerequisites to apply for the original license.
The course in itself is not a certification for Massachusetts, there is another step to get the state license which we will walk you through that process during the course. In order to renew the license, you can take an 8-hour renewal course, or you can test 24 preventers in the three year period following licensure as well as received 3 training contact hours.
32-hour courses must include four 8-hour days, but they do not need to be consecutive and can include weekends. Final approval by Mass DEP-DWP-CCCP is required for all course dates and locations, they will likely need to see the area we set up the wet lab before the course actually takes place.

Do you need a backflow test kit or need to calibrate a test kit you already have? We offer both of these, check out our sister company Kruger Instruments for more information:
