Northwest Backflow Educators is your premier cross connection control training provider. We are dedicated to providing the industry with a complete educational resource.

We provide training for the Plumbing, Fire sprinkler and Landscape irrigation trades. We also provide training for State, City, Industrial and Institutional professionals. We then continue to provide additional backflow assembly repair classes, recertification courses and customer support.

At Northwest Backflow Educators we teach using the USC-FCCCHR 10th edition cross connection control manual. This manual is recognized around the world. It is fully illustrated for ease and thoroughness. If you like it as much as we do, it is available for students to purchase at a discounted price.

Our lab tables are spill resistant and state of the art. We believe hands on beats lecturing every time. We can simulate 16 individual and many more combination failures at your personal work station.

We believe that no student in a full class should ever have to share a test bench so classes are limited to 12 students. Our standard operating practice is six students per instructor. If the class gets full, no problem, we just add another class.

Our Mid-West 845-5 lab gauges are in current calibration and well maintained.

Be prepared to be fully engaged in your class. You will use all your senses and will draw from your experiences.   

Our repair classes are hands on so you get to disassemble your favorite assembly and see how it functions. With over 50 years combined experience in the cross connection control field we have many tips tricks and skills to share that will make your job easier and less stressful.

We have real world experience to go with our knowledge. We have implemented cross connection control programs for a city with over 80,000 citizens to HOAs with 40 homes. We recently implemented a turn-key cross connection control program for a research university with over 600 assemblies and 20,000+ students. Both instructors have owned and operated their own successful cross connection control testing companies. One of our instructors is also a water distribution operator, so we know the challenges you face every day and will be glad to share our experiences with you.

If you are a small municipality on a tight budget that wants to become more compliant with your program we can train your staff and show you how to implement your program without needing a high capital expenditure. If you just need someone to perform the survey, we can provide that service also.

The professional staff at Northwest Backflow Educators is here to assist you with whatever your backflow needs may be.
