THE "FUSION" FORMAT

~8 hours online training + 1 day in the classroom = CPO Certification

Due to the overwhelming preference of our customers to complete as much of the training online as possible, the majority of our CPO courses are offered in the FUSION format. Upon registration in one of our courses, you will be sent a code and instructions to access an online training portal that must be completed before attending the 1-day in-person class.  The 1-day in-person training will review all of the material, cover all local regulations, and include the final CPO certification exam.  

This course is taught in English but the  NSPF® Pool & Spa Operator™ Handbook is available in Spanish as well. Please be sure to request a Spanish handbook when registering.

This course is appropriate for both first-time attendees and those seeking certification renewal.  No previous experience or certification is required to enroll in this course.

For organizations seeking private classes, we will gladly teach the traditional 2-day format class as well if preferred.
