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.

Upcoming One Day Seminar Dates and Topics
Seminar Topic: Hydraulics of Backflow
Hydraulic concepts are covered in order to explain the principles of backflow to those attending. This is a great opportunity to introduce attendees to the concepts of backflow and cross-connection control. Backsiphonage, backpressure, indirect cross-connections and direct cross-connections are all discussed. Which backflow preventers may be used under which hydraulic conditions and degrees of hazard will be covered. Registration for the one-day seminar may be found on the USC Foundation’s website or attendees may contact the USC Foundation office for more information.

Seminar Topic: Recycled Water Shutdown Test
California Code of Regulations requires dual plumbed systems (those plumbed with potable drinking water along with recycled water) must be tested every four years to ensure that there are no cross-connections between the two systems. This update seminar will discuss methods used to test the systems for cross-connections. Various testing methods including the pressure test, shutdown test and dye test will be discussed. SIGN UP NOW
Seminar Topic: Field Test Procedures
Ideal for attendees who are familiar with field-testing backflow preventers, but may need some review and or to become familiar with changes in the Tenth Edition of the Manual of Cross-Connection Control. Discussions will include the differences between the Ninth and Tenth Edition field test procedures and diagnostic scenarios that may be causing a backflow preventer to fail during the field test procedure.
