Going Green - Pool Water Treatment with Sphagnum Moss

CPO® Certification and More

We are proud to offer one of the top CPO® certification programs in the Midwest along with a variety of CEU classes and on-site training programs. Our NSPF® Instructor, Chris Gibson, has 20 plus years experience in swimming pool and spa operations training. The goal of our training programs is not just to help you meet state requirements, but also to present the information in a manner that is simple and accessible, so that you come away with a thorough understanding of the concepts of operating swimming pools and spas.

Iowa Requirements

Iowa health code requires all public swimming pools and spa operators to become certified, and renew their certification every 5 years. The Certified Pool-Spa Operator® certification program is one of the accepted certifications. Operators in Iowa are also required to complete 10 hours of continuing education during the 5 years between CPO® certifications. To view the Iowa Department of Health Rules for Swimming Pools visit

CPO® Certification Courses

"I just wanted to let you know what a great job Chris Gibson did with the CPO class that I attended here a couple weeks ago. I have taken it 3 or 4 times and he is just heads above everybody else. He got his materials out to the people in a manner that everybody understood, he had a wonderful workbook packet that took us step by step where we needed to go, and he made everybody understand it so I thought I would let you know that I am really impressed with him, what he's done, and your whole outfit."

—Peg Bell, Algona Parks & Recreation
