General Class Information 

All classes begin at 8 AM and will last until 5 PM. New certification students will be provided with textbooks and reference materials for the class. Re-certification students are asked to bring their manuals from their prior training course. All students are asked to bring their own note paper, pens/pencils, and a calculator.

All classes have a laboratory segment when students will practice backflow preventer field test procedures prior to the examination. Classroom attire should consider water exposure.

All class lectures are presented in English and all materials are published in English. If a student requires special assistance in any area, IAPMO should be notified prior to the start of a class.

Students should expect 'homework' outside of class time. The tester course contains a great deal of information that must be studied and retained for the examination.

If you are a Colorado water or wastewater treatment plant operator or a distribution/collection system employee, Colorado Training Units will be issued a certificate for four (4) TU's and the certificate will be provided at the end of the course.
