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.
Our Update/Refresher Course – 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. The course is accredited by Active IQ
This course aims to enable the learner to:
- understand the importance and implications of good pool design
- develop a deeper understanding of pool water filtration.
- develop a greater understanding of the pool water disinfection processes and systems
- appreciate the importance of managing hygiene in pools,
- recognise the need for microbiological testing and the significance of the results in interpreting the actions required, including necessary closure.
- understand the importance of planned regular maintenance of pools, pumps, boilers and environmental control systems.
- appreciate the importance of managing chemical safety within the facility
- have an awareness of need for efficient energy use relating to swimming pools.
- develop the knowledge and understanding gained on previous pool plant operator courses.
