9/9/2019-9/11/2019 #874: ASSE Backflow Prevention Assembly Testers Conversion Re-Certification
State College Borough Water Authority
All Public water systems need to be concerned about backflow and cross-connection because all hydraulic systems are subject to pressure differentials that allow backflow to occur. Chapter 109.709 states that "At the direction of the Department, the public water supplier shall develop and implement a comprehensive control program for the elimination of existing cross-connection or the effective containment of sources of contamination, and prevention of future cross-connections." This course will train and recertify participants how to test and troubleshoot backflow prevention assemblies to ensure continued protection of their water supply.
This is also a conversion class. Completion of the ASSE Conversion Class will convert current Non-ASSE tests such as, NEWWA, BMI to ASSE Certification. You must have a current tester certification to attend. Please send a copy of your current NEWWA or BMI Certification with registration.
Participants will need a laptop for evening work and studying for this course. Laptops will be provided for in-class use. If you require a paper copy of the materials, it can be provided at an additional cost of $250. Effective January 1, 2018 all exams will be given by computer.
Exam will be given on the final day of the course.
