Certified Pool Operator (CPO) Recertification Process

Certified Pool Operator (CPO) Recertification Process

We receive a lot of questions from Certified Pool Operators (CPOs) regarding the recertification process, so we created this flowchart to help you decide the best way to maintain your credential.

The hard truth is that typically only advanced pool operators who are working in aquatics daily are successful with only a one-day recertification five years after taking the full course. Anyone working in a more general role (facility maintenance, property management, administration, etc.) should plan to attend the full two-day class. 

Any time or cost savings associated with attending only a one-day recertification class are often negated when the individual fails the licensing exam and has to retake the full two-day class or schedule exam rewrite sessions. 

 Other considerations:

  • if English is not your first language, plan to attend the full two-day class and bring a dictionary in your native language
  • if you have a learning disability, please contact us in advance to discuss accommodation for your individual needs 
  • we know it's hard to take two full days off work to attend a class, but - honestly - sometimes it's easier to do that than to try to find the time to review these concepts off the side of your desk

Any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your individual needs.
