The Mid-Atlantic Backflow Academy

Created in partnership between University of Florida’s TREEO Center and ABC CraftMasters Training Trust, the Mid-Atlantic Backflow Academy is the ONLY dedicated partnership backflow facility in the United States. 

Federally, the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 requires Public Water Systems to keep harmful contaminants and pollutants from entering the water distribution system through cross-connections and backflow. Individual States, Regulatory Authorities and Licensing Agencies realize the critical nature of protecting the potable water within their respective jurisdictions and for this reason, Certified Cross Connection Control Professionals are in demand.    

From Maine and Ohio to North Carolina and all states in between, the Mid-Atlantic Backflow Academy brings cutting-edge backflow instruction at a centralized, east coast location. 

32-Hour Backflow Certification & Recertification

In this 32-hour, 3-day class, participants will develop a working knowledge of the causes and principles of backflow and backflow prevention. Recognizing proper backflow prevention assembly application and operation is stressed. Complete understanding and the ability to perform accepted field-test procedures for all backflow prevention assemblies is required for successful completion.
