Merchandise Description
National Swimming Pool Foundation® (2011)

The Certified Pool-Spa Inspector™ (CPI™) Online Training Program and Handbook, launched jointly by the National Swimming Pool Foundation® and NEHA, is now available. The online course expands upon and replaces the popular CPI training CD introduced by both organizations in 2005. It is designed to help environmental health specialists conduct effective pool and spa inspections and to minimize exposure to public health hazards. It is cost effective and convenient because it can be accessed online, eliminating the need to travel.

The topics included in the course are:
  • operation and maintenance practices that focus on reducing risk,
  • the workings of the circulation system and its components,
  • procedures to evaluate a facility for Pool & Spa Safety Act (P&SS Act) compliance,
  • the unique hazards of spas and the specific inspection needed to ensure safety,
  • how to minimize recreational water illnesses,
  • the ways that operation and maintenance records relate to an inspection,
  • how aquatic play features have unique hazards and the specific inspection needs to ensure safety, and
  • teaching about swimming pool design standards and their impact on public health.
The interactive, self-paced course features narration, images, video, and exercises and can be completed in about two hours. In addition, online course registrants receive the accompanying handbook. A code to access the online course will be sent to you after your order is processed and a copy of the handbook will be mailed to you.  Approved for up to 4.0 hours of NEHA continuing education (CE) credits.
Online Course and Handbook (68 pages, paperback).
