One Day Update Seminars

The USC Foundation has developed the One Day Seminar to offer backflow prevention assembly testers and cross-connection control program specialists an opportunity to be refreshed on current field test procedures and cross-connection control topics.  Furthermore, all attendees will be eligible for continuing education units (CEU’s).

The one-day seminar is not meant to be a replacement for the USC Foundation week long tester or specialist training courses.

Attending the one-day seminar may also help fulfill a student’s requirements for CEU’s. Many attendees who attend a USC Foundation training course follow it up by taking a certification exam from a local health/water department or from a national organization.  Many of these certification organizations require that the student complete a number of contact hours to maintain their certification year after year.  As mentioned above, attendees at the one-day seminar will be eligible for 0.6 CEU’s, the equivalent of 6 contact hours.

Seminars Available in Webinar format beginning in April

Beginning with April's One Day Update Seminar (Los Angeles & California Codes and Regulations) the Foundation will begin offering live webinars of its One Day Update Seminars. Using the service GoToWebinar the Foundation will make available its seminars to anyone with a Internet connection and a computer or mobile device.

Those attendees who wish to participate via the webinar will receive a link after registering for the course. Pricing will remain the same whether the attendee chooses to participate via the webinar or attends the class in person.

USC Foundation policy is that each person viewing the webinar must register. Only registered participants will receive CEU certificates.

For questions please contact the Foundation office.
