Certified Pool Operator Training

“The class was very engaging, entertaining and informative.”
“He is incredible! He took a course that I normally would presume to be dry and lengthy and mad it fun and engaging.”
“I would send everyone to Steve’s class, and only Steve!”
“Steve is easy to understand and presents the material well, so you can learn, remember and understand it.”
“He made a CPO class fun, that’s not easy to do!”


The CPO seminar is approved by the National Swimming Pool Foundation to certify pool operators in all states, and is taught by a certified CPO Instructor.


Anyone involved in the management and/or operation of public swimming pool or spa facilities, including hotels, apartment communities, municipalities, health clubs, and community centers. No prerequisite education or experience is required to attend.

At the conclusion of the seminar, an open book test will be administered. Attendees will have a maximum of two hours to complete the test. A minimum of 75% correct test answers is required to receive Certified Pool Operator (CPO) status. This certification remains valid for 5 years. All attendees who earn certification will also receive: • Wall Certificate • Wallet Card • Shirt Patch


A number of states currently require CPO certification for all pool operators, and many more are considering adding the requirement. Even in states where the requirement does not exist, CPO certification enables the pool operator to manage pools more safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
