In Ontario, backflow prevention device testers must complete and pass the Cross Connection Control course. Certified testers are provided with both the theoretical and the practical hands-on knowledge needed to test backflow prevention. After successfully completing the course, a person’s qualification is valid for up to 5 years; after the 5 years is up, he/ she must recertify to be considered qualified.
At Dave Hurst Plumbing, our plumbers take the backflow and Cross Connection Control course to keep up to industry standards. The official website states that having this certification “provides testers with the credentials required to test backflow prevention devices within various jurisdictions in Atlantic Canada with a recognized Cross Connection Control program.”
