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

 

The Written Exam

Part 1 - Written Exam - The written exam is a multiple-choice type of exam covering subjects contained on the ABPA Need-to-Know Criteria, such as:

• Hydraulic and Backflow Principles

• Theory of Backflow and Cross-connections

• Codes and Regulations • Agency Responsibilities

• Mechanical Equipment

(Design, operation, component breakdown, application, installation requirements, field test procedures, reporting)

 

The Performance Exam
