We are always open to finding new places to host courses in New York. If you know of a place (fire house, plumbing supply branch, local plumbing company, local trade association, etc.) that could host a course for us, we will do your certification or re-certification absolutely FREE OF CHARGE in exchange for the referral. All you have to do is introduce us to the potential host in person, via email, phone, whatever makes sense.

*Course must be open enrollment style allowing us to register other technicians seeking certification, space must be able to hold up to 10 students and include a space with access to water for laboratory portion of the course. TV or presentation equipment not required, only the space itself during the hours of the course.
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 as 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. 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 traning contact hours, but we plan to have an 8-hour course submitted 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.
