    What states require cpo courses classes certification does my state require PHTAWhat Exactly Is CPO and Do I Need The Certification?

    No longer do you need to worry about what to do, how to do it, and when to do it, when it comes to your pool and hot tub. The Certified Pool Operator program is a certification that will prepare you to safely manage your swimming pool or aquatic facility.

    The state of California does not necessarily require all aquatic facilities have a CPO certified operator onsite or a CPO certified pool operator who oversees the management of the facility, but it may be required by your company's insurance provider even corporate policy. Regardless, it is also highly recommended if you want to lower your risk and liability potential. Simply put, CPO Certification is a small price to pay to help avoid potentially huge liability costs.

    • Hotels and Motels
    • Schools and Universities
    • City Pools
