Pool Plant Update/Refresher Course
One day course: Pool Plant Update – Maintaining Currency
The Pool Plant Update course is for those who have done a Level 3 Pool Plant Operators course up to 3 years ago and need to refresh their qualification. The Level 3 certificate lasts for 3 years and then the learner needs to do a Pool Plant Refresher course. the qualification doesn't expire but it is important that the pool operator maintains currency.
Overview of Pool Plant Update Course
It is important that all training is suitable, sufficient and current. The credentials of the trainer is also important.
HSE and the authorities do not specify which qualification should be undertaken and there is no requirement for operators names to be included on a register. There is however, a need for the organisation to prove that the training has been suitable, sufficient and current.
Pool plant qualifications do not expire as such, but they do need to be kept up to date, i.e. current.
Some of the accreditation bodies insist that in order to keep the qualification current, the operator needs to revalidate the certificate within three years or five years with them, and if this date is exceeded then the qualification is invalidated, essentially meaning that the operator has to repeat the whole course, satisfying once again the ever-changing assessment processes involved.
Many experienced, qualified plant operators find themselves in the position where their qualification has ‘expired’ and are unable to find the time to attend another three day course, but would fall foul of the law in the event of an incident.
Our Pool Plant Update – Maintaining Currency programme meets this need. It is aimed at operators who want to update their qualification, irrespective of who accredited it in the first place, and providing that they are still working with pool plant, or managing pools, they can attend the course and will be issued with a certificate confirming that the update training has taken place, and this would demonstrate to the authorities that update training has been provided.
Learners who complete this one day course will be issued with a CPD Pool Plant Update/Refresher Certificate, which will validate their certificate for a further 3 years.
