Tester Certification Program
Share |
The Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester is needed by administrative authorities throughout North America to assure that installed backflow prevention assemblies continue to protect the drinking water. The American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA) Certification Committee (previously know as the Training Committee or the Training and Education Committee) completed the task of establishing criteria for what a Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester needs to know. Once a person has been trained, an examination protocol had to be developed to verify the applicant's knowledge against need to know criteria. The applicant must also be able to demonstrate their ability to test and diagnose the operation of the different types of backflow prevention assemblies. 
 
The ABPA Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester Certification Program has adopted the field test procedures published in the Manual of Cross-Connection Control, Tenth Edition. This manual is published by the University of Southern California's Foundation for Cross-Connection Control and Hydraulic Research. Information about the availability of the non-illustrated field test procedures may be obtained by contacting the Certification Program at (877) 227-2127 or Email Certification@abpa.org
