Swimming Pool & Spa Service Certification Course

October 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Also known as the 60 hour course.  The course 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.
