The Customer Service Inspector/Cross Connection Control course is primarily designed to provide the necessary training for individuals who have met the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requirements and wish to obtain a customer service inspector license. The holder of the customer service inspector license may perform a Customer Service Inspection (CSI) as outlined by the rules and regulations provided by the TCEQ. Other licensed individuals may also receive valuable information relating to their field. The participant, during this course, will gain the necessary information and understanding of the federal, state, and local rules and regulations as they pertain to the Customer Service Inspector (CSI), Plumbing Inspector, Water Supply Protection Specialist (WSPS), Water Purveyor, and Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester (BPAT). During this course, the participant will learn how to find and eliminate cross-connections. The participant will also learn ways to identify water piping, solder, and flux that exceed the allowable lead (Pb) limits, as set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the TCEQ. The participant will also learn the proper installation and application of Backflow Prevention Assemblies.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
