This course will be offered in two formats:

2-Day Classroom Course – This is the traditional CPO experience. Our instructors will lead participants through the CPO curriculum in a dynamic classroom environment. Students will have time to interact and engage with the instructor throughout both days with additional time for one-on-one instruction.

1-Day Fusion Training – We’re pleased to also offer this course as a blended-learning option. With the Fusion Course classroom time is cut in half to accommodate travel schedules. Upon registration, students are provided an access code to the Pool Operator Primer online training. After successful completion of the 8-10 hour Primer Course, Fusion students are well prepared for successful completion of the CPO examination. Participants only need to attend the second day of CPO training, on October 15th. There they review content in the morning and take the CPO examination in the afternoon.
