Certified Pool-Spa Operator (CPO) Certification Program
CPO® WORLD’S LEADING CERTIFIED POOL & SPA OPERATOR TRAINING
With over 400,000 students trained since 1972, the Certified Pool & Operator® (CPO®) certification program is the world’s leading education and certification program for maintaining the safety of pools and keeping them open.
A CPO® is a person who has successfully completed a specific course of instructions sanctioned by the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA), formerly NSPF, for pools and spas. Training offered through this CPO® course will equip each operator with the knowledge, techniques and skills for optimal pool and spa operations. Everything learned in this course will help protect both the swimmers and the facility itself.
As an award-winning CPO® instructor with twenty-plus years of industry experience, your instructor will provide a thorough breakdown of mitigating any potential hazards. This will come with an emphasis on the importance of applying all tools learned for facility preservation and reduction of operating costs, as well as the standard of care expected from each facility’s CPO®.
