COURSE DESCRIPTION

This two day course updates students on guidelines for acceptable practices for testing and annual inspection of backflow prevention prevention assemblies used in cross connection control programs. Students review information in the classroom to prepare for the written exam. They also work with staff in the wet lab to refresh tester skills. Backflow Prevention Assembly Testers hold valid certification for two-years from the date of initial certification and/or recertification. We give a third year as a grace period. Once the three years have passed, you will need to take the Initial certification again.

Special Notice To Florida Licensed Drinking Water, Wastewater and Distribution System Operators: Operators requiring CEUs toward renewal of their licenses cannot take the same course in the renewal cycle 2021-23 that they took during the renewal cycle 2019-2021. Taking the same course in back-to-back renewal periods is prohibited by the FDEP Operator Certification Program. Operators will need to wait until the renewal period 2023-2025 if they want to take the same course again and receive CEU credits.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO NON-TREEO TESTERS- UF TREEO will no longer accept Tester Certifications from other providers. To become a UF TREEO Backflow TESTER,  you will need to attend our Initial Backflow Assembly Tester Training and Certification to become UF TREEO Certified. 

Recertification will be awarded after successful completion of a hands-on lab test (RP and DC) and a 50-question written exam. UF/TREEO testers may use written instructions during the hands-on portion of the exam with a 10-point penalty.

The exam will consist of a written portion (1-hour time limit) and a hands-on evaluation (1-hour time limit)

Special Note for RECERTIFICATION DATES-Starting Aug 01,2018, we will no longer extend RECERT DUE dates to match people that attend early Recertification classes.  Please try to attend a Recertifcation class close to your RECERT DUE Date or Expiration date.

The Recertification date will be set 2 years from the time you attend the class.

Daily breaks are provided.

You are on your own for lunch.

If you do not pass the final exam and hands-on testing, you are able to return to re-test. A fee of $100 will be charged and must be paid prior to receiving your certificate.
