Did you know that, in Texas, all public swimming pools and spas have to be under the supervision and direction of a properly trained and certified operator? (The operator does not have to be on site when the pool/spa is open. The operator can be responsible for multiple pools/spas at multiple locations. The operator's name and contact information must be available on-site.)

The Certified Pool & Spa Operator® (CPO®) certification program is the world’s leading education and certification program for keeping pools safer and keeping them open.

You will learn how to:

  • Reduce risks in and around the water
  • Prevent drowning, recreational water illness, suction entrapment, evisceration, diving accidents, electrocutions, chemical hazards, and slips and falls
  • Address regulatory guidelines
  • Maintain disinfection and water balance
  • Manage water problems
  • Perform troubleshooting, chemical testing, and record keeping
  • Manage chemical feed
  • Utilize automation and technology
Responsibilities of the Certified Pool Operator include:
  • Ensuring on-site pool maintenance personnel are trained to properly operate all equipment.
  • Ensuring chemicals are used according to manufacturer's instructions, and Safety Data Sheets and proper PPE is provided on-site.
  • Ensuring the pool/spa is tested as required and logs, as required are maintained properly.

The CPO certification exam will take place on the second day and will take approximately 2.5 hours.

*Please note, this class needs a total of 10 registrations if not it will have to be rescheduled. 

Please have a valid form of ID available to show on both days.
