To protect the public and advance the education of professional pool/spa operators, the NSPF has initiated a new program with the CPO handbook. The handbook has been entirely rewritten to include the most current information available. It has received extensive expert review. It will be updated yearly to keep the material current. Unlike any other operator training program, the CPO handbook is published in color to help the instructors teach and the students learn. Training provided by instructors help protect millions of swimmers by reducing hazards at aquatic facilities.
Since the CPO Handbook has been completely revised, the NSPF will no longer be offering “ re-certification” (reduced length) courses of challenge exams for CPO certification. All students, regardless of their previous certification, will be required to complete the entire 14-16 hour course.
TIME: Registration: 8:00 – 8:30 am; Class time for the first day is 8:30 am to 5:00 pm and the second day is 8:30am to 4:00pm. Drinks provided morning and afternoon. Please note that no meals are included
FEES: $275.00 per person (+Sales tax if applicable on CPO handbook only), Instructional material, CPO handbook, NSPF certification fee and course expenses. CPO book(s) can be mailed to you upon request no later than 7 days prior to course for a mailing fee of $6.00. IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO REVIEW THE CPO HANDBOOK PRIOR TO THE COURSE. Please bring a handheld calculator with you to the course.
There is now a pool Math Workbook available for an additional $20.00 for those who need help in this area.
COURSE: Instruction by re-certified instructors who are experienced business professionals specifically trained to communicate the basic skills necessary to operate a pool or spa facility. CPO certification is valid for five years.
Attendance to all sessions is mandatory to qualify to take the CPO exam. Spear Corporation reserves the right to cancel the course if necessary with full refund.
