Virtual-Live PHTA® Certified Pool Operator® Certification Class

HD Supply is proud to offer a 2-day webinar that, with successful completion, will provide the participant with a nationally recognized certification in Pool Operation***. In recent years, an increasing number of municipalities across the nation have begun requiring formalized training & a qualified certification for operators & owners of public & semi-public pools. The most widely accepted program with national recognition is the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA®) Certified Pool Operator (CPO®).

To become a Certified Pool Operator®, the student is required to achieve a minimum score of 74% on the CPO® exam. The exam is administered in an open-book format. During the test, the student can refer to his/her PHTA Pool-Spa Operator handbook© as well as any notes taken, or handouts distributed during the webinar.

Upon achieving a passing test score, the CPO® certification will be registered with the PHTA® & the student will receive their certificates by email within approximately 3 weeks. The certification is issued by the PHTA®.

The course is taught in a two-day format starting at 11:00 AM EST & concluding at 6:00 PM EST each day. Students must be on camera & attend both days for the full length of class. It is taught in English & includes instruction & discussion using a PowerPoint presentation. Homework is given for the evening of the first day. The cost for the class is $350.00 per student, which includes the PHTA handbook. The handbook will be mailed out to the address on the account, given at registration. Because of the quantity & depth of material covered, it is highly recommended that the student study the book prior to the class to become familiar with its content.

The student MUST bring these to the class:

  • The PHTA Pool-Spa Operator handbook
  • A calculator
  • Paper & pencil or pen
  • Photo ID (required for the test)
  • Students MUST have camera & microphone

Please note: The exam given is not an "easy" test. A lot of information is covered in a short time, & there is a math component to the course that some technicians can find difficult. While much of the material covered is technical in nature, the course & materials are designed so that if a student with the needed language & reading skills pays attention to the material covered in the class, participates in classroom activities, & completes the homework, they should be able to achieve a passing score for certification.
