The CPO Course is a two (2) day training course that is nationally recognized for Commercial Pool and Spa Operators. When you successfully complete the course, the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) will certify you and give you a permanent registration number. The certification is good for five (5) years.
You will be trained in the most advanced techniques, safety, water chemistry, pool management, and maintenance in this course. The techniques and training you receive will apply to the day-to-day operation requirements of your own pool.
As a supervisor or pool operator, you have a responsibility to your patrons' safety, health and wellbeing while they use your facility.
This course also provides valuable information to aquatic directors, supervisors, pool owners, managers, recreation directors, and engineers who manage/operate swimming pools.
A coroner's jury has recommended that all Class A pool operators become Certified Pool Operators.
