The course will cover: Water testing; Water chemistry; Algae treatment; Pool water problems; Filter and Pump operation; Equipment sizing; Troubleshooting; State Health Department code; and more.  There is a one-hour optional review session with the instructor on the second day of the two-day class available for all who wish to participate.

​​​​​CPO® CERTIFICATION CLASS

Standard 2-Day CPO® Certification Class:

At Aquatic Facility Training & Consultants, we believe the CPO® certification class should include more than the class itself. We know that students may have questions after they complete the course and we think we have a responsibility to be available if we are needed. Included in the tuition for our class is the CPO® Certification Class itself, the Pool Operator Handbook & Pool Math/Chem Worksheets for use in the class itself. The students are also given access to CPO® Certification Class Prep Materials should they wish to prep/practice prior to class. These materials may also be used following the first day of the course to reinforce what was discussed in class. Exams are graded upon completion and students are provided with their results immediately. Following successful completion of the class, the Pool Operator will receive an invitation to join our CPO® Class alumni tech support group. The Pool Operator also receives access to Pool Operator support, if needed, from the instructor via telephone/e-mail after completion of the course.

​​​​

cPO® CERTIFICATION BLENDED TRAINING:

CPO® Certification Blended Training is the best option for an individual who prefers to learn at his/her own pace, or would simply rather spend only one day in a class. Upon completing the online registration and tuition payment, the student will receive a special numeric code along with instruction to access the Online Pool Operator Primer™ course. The student will then be complete the online program at their own pace - they may choose to complete as many, or as few chapters at a time as they wish.  Complete the online portion over the course of several days, weeks, months, or in as little as 7 - 8 hours. Simply log out whenever you feel that it is needed and give your brain time to absorb the information you have learned.

Once the online portion of the program has been completed, the student will be prompted to print the Pool Operator Primer™ Certificate of completion. Student will then have 6 months from Pool Operator Primer™ date of completion to attend the second day of any of our currently scheduled two-day CPO® certification classes. Students must present a Pool Operator Primer™ Record of Completion, Government Issued Photo ID, and successfully complete the CPO® certification exam in order to obtain a CPO® Certification. Student must choose class date and location at time of registration. Student may call to reschedule if necessary.
