Education at Aquafinity

Education is one of the keys to affordable and code-compliant pool operations. Many states require a nationally-certified pool operator on staff, and the other states, along with the national MAHC (Model Aquatic Health Code), consider it a best practice. Aquafinity has been a leader in operator certifications since the early 1990s, and we’re proud to offer the three leading industry operator certifications both in-person and online.

We’ve developed a variety of specialty courses tailored to demystify popular treatment systems and trends. Many of these courses have received Department of Professional Regulation certification for continuing education credits (CEUs) for building managers, certified contractors, and industry professionals.

*Not all courses are available in all areas, so please contact the regional office nearest you for assistance.
