The requirement for pool and spa operator certification is determined by each state's health department. You should contact the health department in your state to determine its training requirements. This certification is accepted in all 50 states and multiple other countries.
CPO® certification is valid for five years from the date you were certified. You must complete another certification process on or before the expiration date for your certification to remain active.
You can take the same two-day Certified Pool Operator® course offered by Wake Tech.
Wake County requires any commercial pool operator to successfully complete the Wake County pool rules exam. To schedule a time to take the exam, call 919-856-7400.
