Why do I need to obtain this certification?

To be certified an individual must demonstrate knowledge of public pools…(and) shall attend a training course of national recognition approved by the department of at least 16 hours in length and shall pass a test acceptable to the department.

The Pool and Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) certifies those persons who successfully complete the 16 hours of Certified Pool-Spa Operator instruction & pass the examination. The standard CPO class is taught over a 2-day period. The CPO certification is valid for 5 years. The course is designed to provide the knowledge necessary to operate & manage public pools & spas.
