Backflow Tester Certification Requirements

After completing a course for field testing backflow prevention assemblies, a tester may be interested in certification. Most local health or water authorities require a tester to be certified before field testing any assemblies in their jurisdictions.

The information below is meant as a starting point for a backflow prevention assembly tester who is looking for certification information. Since certification requirements vary by county in Southern California, we are hoping this information will help testers get started.

Keep in mind, there may be additional certification requirements beyond the county level.
