Training of Testers

Certification Regulations

Each tester must successfully complete the training and hands-on testing before receiving a certification. They must recertify every two years. The testers are required to have test gauges calibrated annually. Once a test is performed on an assembly, the tester will complete the appropriate paperwork for that test. Copies of the test report will be given to the water purveyor and customer; the tester will retain one for his own records.

Note: Tests performed by certified testers shall be in conformance with procedures established by the Foundation for Cross Connection Control and Hydraulic Research (FCCCHR) at the University of Southern California.
