Covid-19 Crisis Update


In accordance with the Cross Connection Management Program advocated by the American Water Works Association (AWWA), recertification of backflow prevention device testers is required every 5 years. Testers must take recertification training every five years prior to their certificate expiry date to meet the program requirements.

Given the current preventative measures against COVID-19, institutions are not providing training at this time. Testers whose certification expires during this time will not be required to take the full certification course. Testers are expected to take the next available recertification course once courses are offered again.


Licensing of testers is managed by the Authority Holding Jurisdiction (AHJ). If your certificate is expiring during this time, please contact your AHJ or licensing authority for direction.
