Backflow Prevention

About the Course

This course has been designed to develop the skills and knowledge to enable
participants to test and maintain backflow prevention as requested by Water
Authorities.

Public health and safety is paramount in regards to drinking therefore any
backflow prevention devices installed and commissioned must be maintained to the
highest standard of efficiency. Practical skill sessions will be integrated
with theory lectures throughout the course so the participating tradespersons,
through 'hands on' time, will gain detailed knowledge of each device.

At the completion of the course, participants will be required to undertake a
performance test, in which they will identify and test a minimum of three
backflow prevention devices. A theory test covering all course topics is also
included.
