Course Description
Consider this program if you are a trades person looking to improve your understanding of cross-connection control or to obtain certification. The program's emphasis is on hazards, devices, and testing. It is designed for those already involved with the planning, design, installation, maintenance, and inspection of plumbing, piping systems, or water-supplied equipment that connects to the potable water system, either inside or outside of buildings.

A cross-connection is any physical connection between two separate systems, one of which is drinking water and the other polluted water or contaminated fluids, gases, or substances. The pressure differential between the two systems may cause contaminated or polluted fluids to flow through connections with no control, ultimately changing the quality of the potable water. Reversal of flow in the water may be unpredictable. Backflow education and training will help you to effectively combat all actual and potential types of cross-connections.

Course length; 30 hours (4 days) of theory and practical instruction using BEATS Mobile Tester Training Lab.

No prerequisites required.


This course is eligible for the Canada - Alberta Job Grant (CAJG), which will reimburse up to 2/3 of the costs of training for organizations that qualify.
Successful completion of both written and practical exams on the last day of classes is required to receive your AWWA Cross Connection Control Specialist Tester Certificate.
  • Space is limited.  Application and Exam fee of $105.00 for WCSAWWA certification not included and payable to instructor on day of testing.
