How Do I Get My CPO Certification?

Receiving your CPO Certification is simple and the award-winning instructors at Pool Training Academy are ready to help you! Read below to get a quick overview of what receiving your Certified Pool Operator Certification entails.

Getting CPO Certified

Getting your NSPF Certified Pool Operator Certification is easy! Here is the most common way students complete the course:

  1. Sign up for a 2-day class that is convenient and easy
  2. Day 1 - Attend the course and learn the course materials
  3. Day 2- Take exam
  4. Receive your CPO Certification certificate!

There are other options if sitting through a 2-day course isn't for you!

CPO Courses Online

If you are looking for more flexibility, you can sign up here for the Pool Operator Primer / Fusion Course. This course allows you to take the online portion (Pool Operator Primer) at your leisure. Once you have completed the Pool Operator Primer, you will only need to attend a one day in-class course. We have many convenient class dates and locations, so you can find one that works with your schedule.

Getting Your CPO Certificate

Once you have completed the course online or in-class, you will take the CPO Exam. Once you pass the CPO exam, you will receive your CPO Certification.


Choosing The Right CPO Instructors

Getting CPO Certified is actually quite easy if you're taking the course from the right teachers! The information can get technical at times, so it's important you select a class that knows how to make the information easy to understand. The Pool Training Academy has one of the highest pass-rates of any of the CPO schools in the USA - and our students emerge with not JUST a certification, but a true understanding of how their pools work, how to keep them running efficiently and safely, and most importantly - an education that can help them for years to come!

You can sign up here to attend one of Pool Training Academy’s Certified Pool Operator (CPO) courses taught by one of our Award-winning CPO (Certified Pool Operator) Instructors.

The Best CPO Certification Program

Pool Training Academy offers an award-winning 2-day classroom experience that is like NO OTHER certified pool operator course offered anywhere else! Most courses are boring, hard to understand and, unfortunately, their goal is to just get you to pass the test, whether you learn anything or not. Our hands-on program couldn't me more different!

But it isn't just dry or boring book learning!

We aren't just educators - we have been working in the pool industry in every facet for decades and understand the real struggles associate with maintaining a safe, profitable, and professional pool.
