THE LEADING EDUCATOR OF THOSE WHO CARE FOR SWIMMING POOLS & HOT TUBS
Aquatic facilities have unique hazards and operational challenges including drowning, recreational water illness (RWI), injuries, chemical exposure, and suction equipment. These occurrences reinforce the need to raise standards to minimize injury and illness.
Whether you are working with clients in the water who are wounded warriors, athletes recovering from injury, everyday folks healing from joint replacement surgery, or asthmatics and arthritics seeking greater endurance and reduced pain and swelling - swimming pools and hot tubs need to be safe and health environments.
The National Swimming Pool Foundation® (NSPF®) is empowering medical fitness professionals, therapists, exercise instructors, and aquatic facilities managers with all the important tools needed to provide health pools for healthy bodies. The National Swimming Pool Foundation is the leader in aquatic education and research and has trained over 300,000 operators in 70 countries and maintains a database of Certified Pool/Spa Opertator® certification classes all over the world at http://www.nspf.org/en/CPO/CPOSchedule.aspx. The CPO® certification program is aligned with the recent Centers for Disease Control Model Aquatic Health Code Operator Training Module. In addition, a series of online aquatic training and compliance training programs are available at www.nspf.org.
The Pool Operator Primer® online class covers the basics of how to care for a pool and can be the first step to earning your CPO® Certification. It includes the NSPF® Pool & Spa Operator Handbook, the most widely used reference dovument in this field.
