Course Overview

Boost your plumbing expertise by exploring cross connection. Knowledge of the natural laws that govern the flow of water allows you to predict how it will behave. Discover thermal expansion absorbers (THERM-X-TROL Expansion Tanks), atmospheric vacuum breakers, and irrigation systems. Dive into force loading, backflow, open and closed water systems, and much more. Test your knowledge in the course exam.

With the skills gained from this course, you will be able to define reduced backflow prevention, required air gaps, and back syphonage backflow as well as calculate pressure, force, and more.

On the final day of the course, after a passing mark is achieved, students will pay $100 plus GST to the instructor. This fee is to cover the cost of the AWWA registration/membership fee (valid for 5 years).

Recommended for Plumbers, Pipefitters, Steamfitters, and Boilermakers and those having experience with piping systems
