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).
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.
