The committee communicates with and monitors the following groups:
We collaborate with members of the Canadian CCC Coordinating Committee with respect to examination questions and procedures for use by accredited educational institutions.
We visit and evaluate educational institutions requesting teaching status.
The Committee recommends actions to OWWA to overcome existing or potential conflicts between codes and good backflow prevention.
Our members contribute articles to Pipeline and frequently present papers at workshops and seminars.
Our members include a broad cross-section of water industry specialists with an interest in backflow prevention, including water purveyors, regulators, equipment suppliers, consultants, educators, and other interested parties.
In addition to the Chair and Vice Chair, a Certification Officer is appointed to serve as the key liaison with local educational institutions.
The committee has four meetings each year. Meetings are generally held on the second Thursday in February, May, September and November. Meeting sites vary but are based on committee member locations.
