This two-day advanced course is for individuals currently holding Backflow Assembly Tester certification. Time is spent both in the classroom and the working lab. This advanced course provides the experienced tester with hands-on experience in the repair and maintenance of large diameter backflow preventers from various manufacturers. Instructors discuss advanced testing, trouble-shooting and safety procedures.  It is strongly recommended that you wait to attend this course until you have held a tester certification for at least six months.  This will give the tester time to gain field experience and be prepared for the advanced concepts in this course.
