AquaTech is designed to prepare you to operate a pool or aquatic facility according to U.S. and international training requirements. Using a combination of online study and on-site competency testing, the AquaTech certification course offers a flexible alternative to classroom-only certification methods with the following benefits:
User-friendly, non-intimidating training. AquaTech helps you master the fundamentals of aquatic facility care through clear, simple explanations of the key concepts. Rather than just working through pages of math problems, you’ll learn the hows and whys behind the essential procedures, resulting in a more thorough understanding of the job.
Developed by industry leaders. AquaTech was designed with the help of experts who understand the changing needs of today’s aquatic facilities. These people include Robert Burrows, Tom Carrico, Robert Clayton, Juliene Hefter, Mick Nelson, Jill White, and Kent Williams.
Meaningful interactive online instruction. The course is more than just book content presented online. It takes students step by step through a typical work day to help them connect important concepts to real-world practice. Participants will work through interactive scenarios based around situations they’re likely to face on the job.
Outstanding study and reference materials. The AquaTech text features full-color photographs and reader-friendly elements such as margin notes, best practices tables, and step-by-step instructions for common pool issues. Included with each book is the AquaTech Pool Tool, a handy laminated reference card that features formulas, conversions, charts, and calculation tips. Both resources will be valuable tools even after the course is completed.
The AquaTech online course will teach you how pool systems work and how to maintain them, as well as how to diagnose, prevent, and solve common pool care troubles. You’ll also find information on reducing risk and increasing safety at your facility. After completing the course, you’ll have all the requisite competencies to successfully operate a pool or other aquatic facility.
Following successful completion of the online course, students take part in an instructor-led session. Successful completion of the instructor-led session leads to certification.*
*Certification requirements may vary. Some cities, counties, or states only require the online component for certification. Please consult your local code or contact us for details regarding requirements in your area.
An online and classroom course that leads to certification, which meets the regulatory requirements for operators of the physical plant aspects of a pool or aquatic facility. Also a reference for use by certified pool operators and aquatic facility directors and managers.
Becoming AquaTech certified is a great way for any aquatics, park or recreation professional to expand their career horizons. Pool management and operations are an integral part of many positions, and this certification will assist you with obtaining the necessary knowledge to operate a facility efficiently and successfully.
The online course that accompanies AquaTech is truly an interactive experience - it's not just a book and some math problems delivered via the internet. It virtually takes the student through the day to day experiences of a pool operator and the situations that may present themselves.
