What is the CPT?




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 Certified Pool Operator 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! 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?




Why choose the CPT™?


If you need to be certified as a pool operator and would like to do so completely online, then the Certified Pool Technician™ program is your only choice.

Still not sure if you would prefer the CPT over the traditional classroom route?
Consider the following:
  • With the CPT™ you can work at your own pace on your time, whenever and wherever you would like, all you need is a computer with internet access.
  • Your CPT™ certification will stay in effect for a full FIVE YEARS, while most of the other certification programs require renewal after only 3 years.
  • If you fail to pass the exam on your first attempt, you may retake the test anytime you would like after waiting 24 hours- with NO additional charges. If you were to fail in a classroom exam environment you would have to pay the exam fee all over, AND wait until an exam date became available.
  • The Certified Pool Technician™ program is one of the very few pool professional certifications that is fully accredited by ANSI and the IACET.
  • Still not sure? The Aquatic Training Institute™ offers a money back guarantee* and we are a proud member of the Better Business Bureau Online Reliability program.
