This training is limited to 12 students, register today!

This training will be held at the City of Lewiston Water Transmission Shop. Please note, this class starts at 8:00 AM.

Idaho Rural Water is proud to announce its partnership with Northwest Backflow Educators to bring you this hands-on class! Since our partnership with Northwest Backflow Educators in the beginning of 2019, we have had overwhelming positive feedback from their classes and requests for more training with them. We are pleased to offer this interactive training for Backflow Assembly Tester Recertification.

This 8-hour course meets criteria required by the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licenses to renew a Backflow Assembly Tester’s License. You may also take the course for 0.8 of either drinking water or wastewater CEUs, or for 8 hours of plumbing education credits. You will get to practice on all types of assemblies, learn troubleshooting techniques, tips for testing, and more! Bring your backflow manual for reference if you have one.

Northwest Backflow Educators would like to deliver this short message to Idaho’s Operations Specialists:

“Northwest Backflow Educators is your premier cross connection control training provider. We are dedicated to providing the industry with a complete educational resource regarding backflow prevention and testing.

We provide training for the plumbing, fire sprinkler and landscape irrigation trades. We also provide training for state, city, industrial and institutional professionals. We provide additional backflow assembly repair classes, recertification courses and customer support.

At Northwest Backflow Educators we teach using the USC-FCCCHR 10th Edition Cross Connection Control Manual. This manual is recognized around the world for its easy-to-understand text, illustrations and thoroughness. If you like it as much as we do, it is available for students to purchase at a discounted price.

Our lab tables are spill resistant and state-of-the-art. We believe hands-on beats lecturing every time. We can simulate 16 individual (and many more combination) failures at your personal work station.

We believe that no student in a full class should ever have to share a test bench, so classes are limited to 12 students. Our standard operating practice is six students per instructor. If the class gets full, no problem! We can just add another class.

Our Mid-West 845-5 lab gauges are in current calibration and are well maintained.

Be prepared to be fully engaged in your class. You will use all your senses and will draw from your experiences.

Our repair classes are hands-on, so you get to disassemble your favorite assembly and see how it functions. With over 50 years combined experience in the cross connection control field we have many tips tricks and skills to share that will make your job easier and less stressful.

We have real world experience to go with our knowledge. We have implemented Cross Connection Control Programs for communities of all sizes, from a city with over 80,000 citizens to an HOA with 40 homes. We recently implemented a turn-key cross connection control program for a research university with over 600 assemblies and over 20,000 students. Both of our instructors have owned and operated their own successful cross connection control testing companies. One of our instructors is also a water distribution operator, so we know the challenges you face every day and will be glad to share our experiences with you.

The professional staff at IRWA and Northwest Backflow Educators is here to assist you with whatever your backflow needs may be. We look forward to working with you!”
