This Certified Pool Operator (CPO) course teaches individuals the basic knowledge and skills needed for pool and spa operations. A number of states currently require CPO certification for all pool operators, and many more are considering adding the requirement. Even in states where the requirement does not exist, CPO certification enables the pool operator to manage pools more safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively. The course typically takes two consecutive days to complete, and a certification test administered at the conclusion of the course.
This course will cover public bathing codes, water chemistry, filtration and circulation, seasonal pool care, pool management strategies and requirements, energy management, calculations and testing pool water and making adjustments, maintenance and operational problems, renovating and modernization of pool facilities, and disease and accident prevention.
Upon successful completion of this comprehensive course and exam, the participant will be CPO certified in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, Canada, and the U.S. Virgin Islands for a period of five years.
