The National Swimming Pool Foundation's Certified Pool Operator Certification Course is the national leader in pool safety, operation, and management. Developed and published by the National Swimming Pool Foundation, this course is geared towards raising the level of quality, safety, and efficiency of pool operations. Certification as a CPO provides an increased level of knowledge and resource information to the pool operator. For 2017, NSPF has published a new CPO Handbook, and a new certification exam, along with updated and revised teaching materials. We encourage you to update to the new information by re-certifying as a CPO, or, at the least, by purchasing an updated handbook. Contact us for pricing and availability.
The CPO Certification Course is an intensive 14 hours of instruction, followed by a challenging 'open book' exam. Students who achieve a grade of 75% or higher on their exam will receive their certification as a Pool / Spa Operator, which is valid for five years from the date of their exam. While we have an excellent pass / fail ratio, it is important to remember that not everyone passes this course; we are teaching important and necessary topics, and NOT selling certifications. Our goal is to present the course material in an understandable and informative manner, so that all students leave the classroom having grained knowledge that will benefit them in their careers as pool operators.
American Pool Consultants is a leader in CPO Certification training, having taught the Course in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Florida, Barbados, Antigua and Australia! with over 23 years experience in CPO instruction, our courses are done thoughtfully and carefully, with an eye towards giving our students a solid understanding of the course material. Basic concepts and theories are discussed and explained so that at the end of the course, all students have gained knowledge which will be helpful to them and to their employers.
Our instructors are available to conduct Certified Pool Operator Certification Courses at YOUR location, regardless of where that might be. While we do have requirements for a minimum number of students, the cost of a "private" course for your facility can be quite reasonable, and instruction done in a small group setting can be more effective than in a larger group. If you would be interested in hosting a Certified Pool Operator Certification Course, please contact us for details as to scheduling and costs.
