Description Swimming Pool Operators CD self-study course
Location Specifics The American Lifeguard Association offers a national self-study training program that is on CD-ROM for obtaining your Swimming Pool Operator certification.

The Center For Disease Control recommends that every swimming pool have at least one individual trained as a Swimming Pool Operator. Because of this, we highly recommend that everyone takes this course if you are working at a swimming pool. We feel it will make a better professional Lifeguard, and will help the individual run a safer swimming pool environment for all. We also strongly feel that by having this training you will have the best opportunity of a higher-paying position, and will have an advantage over hiring when competing with others who only have their Lifeguard certification.

The CD-ROM course is an excellent and innovative tool for training new swimming pool operators and a good review for experienced individuals. The 37 lessons include more than 100 videos, computer animations, and detailed 3-D graphics, 470 photos, interactive problem-solving exercises and quizzes along with up-to-date links to the Center For Disease Control Healthy Swimming Web site for additional information and to keep the training material current with the latest information on recreational water illness prevention and safety.

The CD ROM program runs on PC Windows format and will not run on MAC-OS, without the aid of additional software. Once you register, we will email you a link where you can download a free trial offer of software that will allow you to use your MAC to open and run programs like our CD.

The course content includes Introduction (historical, modern, public health issues) Pool design (safety design, construction standards, calculations of volume, recirculation, filtration, construction extras) Operation (certified pool operators, chemistry record keeping, equipment, troubleshooting) Other pool types (wading pools, spa pools, water recreation attractions). It also covers safety (entrapment, the pool deck, inside the pool, safety equipment, CPR, chemical storage, lifeguards and instructors). In addition, it teaches pool chemistry (the basics, the periodic table, chemical properties of water, the halogens in water, the chemistry of chlorine in water, shocking the pool, pH, other testing parameters) Pool Forms Inspections (conducting inspections, inspector requirements, enforcement) Code Enforcement.

You may also view online an excellent Swimming Pool Operators manual, which is over 100 pages of information, and reference guide.

Once you register, we will priority mail a copy of the CD-ROM. A tracking number along with all the information on how to complete the self-study program with be emailed to you within minutes. The final online exam may be completed using the study materials provided and the CD ROM. Again, this is a self-study program where you watch the CD-ROM, review the online manual and take an open book 50-question exam. If you fail to pass with a grade of 80, or higher you may retake the exam at no additional cost.

The course fee includes the final exam, and you will be instantly notified of your exam results. Upon successful completion of the exam, candidates will be able to print their PO certificate. In addition, their results will be posted that very same day on our affiliate's website at http://www.universalcertification.org/, and may be verified at anytime in the future. We will also be mailing a waterproof certification the very next day to all US address holders, at no additional charge.
