WHO SHOULD BECOME QUALIFIED?

There should be a trained and certified operator at any pool facility. If the routine maintenance is provided by a third party service company (the majority of Cyprus pool operators) then the pool operator should be qualified. The owner or manager of a facility or the person responsible for the pool should have a comprehensive knowledge of statutes, administrative codes, regulations and common practices. The CPO certified pool and spa operators training programme provides this education base.

The course is a 2 day intensive training seminar with an examination at the end lasting around 2 / 3 hours, as well as homework on the first day. The successful candidates must attain a minimum score of 75% to be accredited with the C.P.O operator’s licences.

ASSESSMENT CERTIFICATION

The NSPF, (National swimming pool foundation) C.P.O training course is the most respected pool and spa maintenance course in the world with over 250,000 people trained to date.

Once you have successfully achieved the pass rate you will be an accredited C.P.O operator for a period of 5 years. You will also ( in that period ) have direct access to your instructors for added information , advice and guidance when required as well as information relayed to you on a regular basis from the NSPF.

Our aim is to help rather than tell you what to do , all pools react differently depending on various factors and nobody will know that individual pool or installation better than you the pool maintenance person , but there are times when you will need that little bit of help , advice ,guidance and we will always be on hand .
