Tester Certification

Become a Certified Backflow Inspector.

Backflow Training Services is industry-driven and industry-sponsored. The curriculum is taught by qualified and licensed individuals with a lifetime of experience.  The classes include up to date information with hands on training to ensure you meet the requirements of becoming certified.

Course Highlights:

Tester Certification

The course consists of 32 hours of classroom and lab time.

Monday is spent studying backflow history and all the causes of backflow with applicable laws and ordinances.

Tuesday is spent learning nationally recognized test procedures and applying them in “real world” situations.

Wednesday is spent trouble shooting the valves that have simulated failures and memorizing these procedures.

Thursday is spent practicing for the written test and the hands on test for the test on Friday.

Friday the national ABPA test is a multiple-choice test with 100 questions. If the student passes with at least 70%, they will go into the wet lab and demonstrate their skills at identifying backflow valves that have been set up with failures. Proctors will witness and evaluate the proper skills to test backflow preventers.

Upon successful completion of the written and practical tests, a certificate from the State of Utah and a nationally recognized American Backflow Prevention Association will be issued which is good for three years, at which time the student will have to re-certify to keep a current certification.
