Celebrating 2,500 Graduates!

Friday, May 3, 2019

MCE recently celebrated the graduation of the 2,500th participant in our Backflow/Cross Connector program. In this program, individuals learn how to prevent backflow  - unwanted flow of used or non-potable water or substance from any domestic, industrial or institutional piping system into the pure, potable water distribution system.

“I never thought we’d hit this number.”, said Mike Haslam, a retired Professor in the School of Engineering & Technology at Mohawk College who was instrumental in bringing the Ontario Water Works Association (OWWA) Cross Connection Control course to Ontario. Mike delivers the program on behalf of Mohawk College Enterprise (MCE), the corporate training subsidiary of the college.
