60 Hour Course

Need a service license? The Florida Swimming Pool Contractor Pre-Licensure Certification Course is your answer!

This 60 Hour course (Including WS, WC, BP, and L&R)  helps you meet the education requirements of Florida Statue 489.111 and substitutes for three years of experience. This is not an exam prep course (it does not address the business portion of the exam, it does not prepare you for the exam and it does not provide you with the books you need for the exam).

All four modules must be taken together in one pre-licensure program. Taking courses offered elsewhere will not count toward the pre-license requirement.

The price for non-members is $2200 plus a $300 enrollment fee; FSPA member price is $1100 plus $300 enrollment fee. The price includes course manual and workbook, handouts and  FP2S certificate (must pass test).
