Education is the Key to Pool Operation Now There are 4 Great Ways to Learn

For decades, CES and our customers have experienced the concept that “Education is the Key” to optimum pool operation. That is why we now offer 4 great ways to train managers and staff on a variety of topics. You can even get valuable continuing education credits (CEUs) toward renewing your Florida Department of Professional Regulation (DPR) license.  

These training opportunities range from two-day internationally accredited pool operator certification courses required by most DOH codes…all the way to one-on-one, belly-to-belly training in your equipment room. There’s also a full array of online, interactive classes at your pace, and remote learning classes, and even a hybrid pool operator certification class. 

Traditional Face-to-Face Seminars: Provided to a group at your facility or a centralized location (All social distancing requirements applied). Please check the CES Class Schedule website page for schedules.

  • These have been a popular mainstay at CES since the 1980s, and are led by experienced CES Pool Manager/AFO instructors with an average of 20 years of in-field experience.
  • The (5) current classes are detailed here, and CES is proud to be an industry-leading educator in the US.
  • The two-day classes are scheduled in locations that will comfortably accommodate 20-30 people, and sometimes hosted at CES in Jupiter, and are also available as a instructor-led remote classes (see below).

  • Hybrid certification classes are a popular new alternative to the traditional seminars.

Once you finish the class and complete the quiz, then we invite you to a full day hands-on class covering a complete array of important concepts including 10 learning stations on pool operation, code compliance, etc. The one-day hands on class is known as Hands On Operator Pool School, or HOOPS for short.
