For Massachusetts, we do not have open enrollment courses available at this time. Instead, we offer private courses at your location! There is a minimum of 5 students, and if you have 10 or more students, we offer 10% off. If you want to schedule, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 917-887-5613.
We hold a conditional 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, as conditionally approved by them, 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. Once a course is set up with us, we have to submit this course location and dates for final approval by Mass DEP-DWP-CCCP.
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. We have not yet made a submission for an 8-hour renewal course so in order to renew you would have to test 24 preventers in the three year period following licensure as well as received 3 training contact hours, but we plan to have an 8-hour course approved in the near future.
The MassDEP-DWP-CCCP certification guide is posted on their website - https://www.mass.gov/files/documents/2016/08/nc/ws10.pdf
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.
