What are the Benefits of taking the PHTA CPO Course?

The PHTA Certified Pool/Spa Operator® certification program is the leading international education and certification program for pool and spa operators and health officials protecting the public from illness and injury. The PHTA has certified over 400,000 pool operators to date. In 2019 alone, about 40,000 people were trained.

Who should take these Courses?

Our traditional 2-Day CPO Course in the classroom has been successfully helping people to become qualified for years. The instructors will lead participants through the CPO curriculum in a productive classroom environment. Students will have time to communicate with the instructor during both days, including additional time for one-on-one instruction.

The Fusion Course Format

The Fusion course is most suitable for self-paced students who do not have two successive days to spare. It is the same Certified Pool Operator course, just split into two parts. You will begin your course independently, with approximately 6-8 hours of self-paced eLearning. You will have to complete this before requesting a course date. On that day, you will join your instructor online for a one-day session where you will review content in the morning and complete your examination in the afternoon.

The CPO certification is valid for five years and is an indispensable qualification for

  • Pool Managers
  • Facility Technicians
  • Club Supervisors
  • Hotel and Resort Engineering Staff
  • Housekeeping Team
  • Seasonal Aquatic Staff
  • Recreation Amenity Managers
