"I have learned so much in two days my head hurts. I realize I've only broken the surface though."
Pool Service Tech - Denver, CO
"I appreciate everything and can't wait to get out in the field, this week, to implement many of the recommendations Rick had! I'm sure my properties will see a huge improvement and, in turn, will increase our customer's vacations."
Chaz - Steamboat Springs, CO
"Excellent! Great class! I learned a lot and reinforced what I did know. Easy to understand, not overwhelming."
Swimming Pool Inspector - Kansas City, KS
"We ALL enjoyed the class. A ton of actual practical information that we are going to follow up on. I always hate to do those "dumb" evaluations, but I've done our outdoor 50 meter pool for 35 years as well as our Rec Center comp pool, lazy river, and two splash pads so I have taken a few CPO classes along the way. This one was by far the best. You guys rock! Well worth it."
Mark - Student
