Private Course - We can come to your location and train only your staff, bring all props, handouts, equipment, etc., Minimum of 10 students

Our 32-hour backflow tester course / program is approved through the Mississippi State Department of Health, Bureau of Public Water Supply.
The course is technically 5 days including the exams, so four 8-hour days of training and then both a written and practical exam on the day following. There is a registration process with the Health Department following the courses and exams.
In Mississippi, backflow preventer assembly testers are regulated by the Department of Health, and testers are required to take a 32-hour course administered by an approved school, and then pass the state written exam which is proctored by a representative from them.
