Those who complete the program and examination receive certification and a registration number which is valid for five years in all 50 states.

Why Do You Need Training?

The CPO course is a training program specifically designed to meet the needs of supervisory or operations personnel working in public and semipublic recreational pools or water park facilities. As a pool or spa operator, you are obligated to provide a clean, disease free, and safe facility. Your facility must be kept in good operating order and needs to operate efficiently. Only an individual with suitable training and experience is qualified to meet these responsibilities.
