CPO Training and Certification

Certified Pool Operator (CPO) training is a nationally recognized course, followed by written examination, which teaches advanced techniques in safety, water chemistry, maintenance and management. This course is recognized as a standard of 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 examination receive certification and a registration number, which is valid for five years.

Who should attend

Pool Managers, Pool Directors, Motel Personnel, Apartment/Condo/Building Managers, Spa Personnel, Maintenance Personnel, Health Club Owners & Directors, Camp Aquatic Staff, Recreation Facility Managers and others who need facts about pool operations.

Pool/Spa regulations

The State of North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources regulations require commercial and public pools to have a person certified in pool operations. Successful completion of this CPO class will fulfill this code requirement.
