TCEQ Course Code 1206 BPAT: This course is designed to provide 32 hours of continuing education for licensed Backflow Prevention Assembly Testers.  This course also provides the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) required 8 hours of “hands-on” continuing education.  The 32 hour BPAT CE is conducted concurrently with the 40 hour “Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester” course Monday through Thursday.

The (USC) 10th edition manual is not provided with nor required for this class.  If you wish, you may purchase a (USC) 10th edition manual for the class or bring your own.  Course materials with test procedures are included with the class.
