CPO® Certification Training

A trained and knowledgeable staff is the best way to operate your pool at peak efficiency and give your guests a pleasant and safe aquatic experience. The National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) has developed the Certified Pool Operator® (CPO®) program to provide individuals with the basic knowledge, techniques, and skills of pool and spa operations.

Course Information:

  • The CPO® certification program requires participation in either a two-day class (14-16 hours) taught by a certified instructor, or the blended format that combines the online Pool Operator Primer™ and one day of the Pool Operator Fusion™ class of instruction
  • The CPO® certification program includes pool and spa chemistry, testing, treatment, filtration, maintenance, automatic feeding equipment, and government requirements
  • The CPO® certification program requires an open book written examination
  • The CPO® certification is valid for five years

Each Spring and Fall, our NSPF certified instructor, Ken Walther conducts CPO® certification courses at various locations. Check out the Events tab for upcoming dates, locations, and registration information.

Onsite Water Management Assessment and Training

Anytime we install or replace equipment, we are committed to making sure that your staff is well trained in its successful operation. In addition, our team of aquatic experts is available to assess your water management operations, troubleshoot issues, make recommendations, and refresh staff training on existing equipment.

Proper use is the key to extracting the most value from your pool and spa equipment. That’s why we are so committed to making sure that your staff is continually up-to-date on the proper operation of your equipment and systems. Didn’t purchase it from Valley Aquatic Solutions?
