What is involved in the Backflow Prevention Tester Examination:

 

There is a two-part test. First, a closed book written examination must be successfully completed, then an individual hands-on performance exam.

The performance exam requires that you successfully demonstrate the field test procedures for the:

RP - Reduced pressure principle assembly

DC - Double check valve assembly

PVB - Pressure vacuum breaker assembly

SVB - Spill Resistant pressure vacuum breaker
