The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted “business as usual” for multitudes of businesses across the world. Because requirements for safe distancing and the uncertainty that venues where the courses were to be held may be closed, the need to provide a safe environment for CPO participants to obtain their certification has been changed to an online course followed by an online exam.
Instructions will be provided for each registering student. This is a self-paced online course that takes students through the 18 chapters of the Pool / Spa Operator Handbook. A hard copy of the Handbook will be mailed to each registering student. This self-paced online course must be completed before May 12, 2020. Registering students are then required to attend the one-day instructor-led online course which ends with the online exam. The online course and exam are scheduled for May 14, 2020.
