What is the CPT

The Certified Pool Technician program is the ONLY completely online solution for swimming pool and spa professionals seeking to obtain their professional certification.  The CPT is similar to the CPO program offered by the NSPF in that both are valid nationwide* and satisfy state and local requirements.  However, the CPT is offered 100% online - both the training AND the certification.  No more classrooms!  No more travel!  No more missing work!  No more fuel costs!  Work at your own pace on your own time.


With the Certified Pool Technician program offered exclusively by the Aquatic Training Institute, pool operators can complete their training AND their examination without ever having to set foot in a classroom.  All you need is a computer and an Internet connection and you can efficiently achieve your professional certification!

Why Choose the CPT

If you need to be certified as a pool operator and would like to do so completely ONLINE, then the CPT program is your only choice!  Still not sure?  Consider the following:

"I want to thank you again for having your CPO certification program on line. My husband was able to secure the job, thanks to you and your program! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year!"
