Pool Plant Update/Refresher Courses

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
