    Certified Pool/Spa Operators Course

    Tuesday & Wednesday, March 24 & 25, 2020

    Best Western/Windjammer in South Burlington, VT

    The Certified Pool Operator® certification program is a nationally recognized course which teaches advanced techniques in safety, water chemistry, maintenance and management. This course is recognized as the standard in the industry. The CPO® seal of approval is assurance to pool and spa owners, from motels to Olympic-sized municipal and college pools, that their facilities and their swimmers are under the supervision of trained certified professionals. Those who complete the program and open-book and open-note examination receive certification and a registration number which is valid for five years in all 50 states.

    Who should attend? Recreation directors, pool directors, pool managers, health inspectors, apartment/condo/building managers, service technicians, engineering staff, spa personnel, maintenance personnel, aquatic staff, and recreation facility managers from community recreation centers, swim clubs, municipalities, hotels, motels, swim parks, resorts, health clubs, country clubs, colleges, universities, military installations, hospitals, schools, etc. - any facility with a pool, spa, or aquatic feature.

    The Vermont Recreation & Parks Association hosts a CPO Course once each year. This is your opportunity to get your pool staff trained and ready to go for the summer 2020 pool season.
