“SPASA Industry Training is important to the success of Naughtons Pools & Spas. I recently sent 15 employees to hydraulics training and I am satisfied that the tuition my staff received will be an excellent investment in my business in the long run“
– Justin Hatfield, Registered Building Practitioner & Director of Naughtons Pools and Spas
“We highly recommend that anyone involved in the pool industry take advantage of the excellent industry training conducted by SPASA. The courses offered each year help to maintain and improve your knowledge and expertise. The training covers a range of subjects appropriate for both newcomers to the industry, as well as advanced topics for the more experienced participants. Furthermore, it is conducted by extremely skilled and capable instructors. Regardless of the number of years of your involvement in the industry, we guarantee that you will always benefit from attending these sessions… and your clients will notice.”
– Helen Strangos, Director of The Diamond Pool & Spa Company
"We strongly believe in the SPASA Industry Training and believe anybody coming into the industry needs to do most of the courses. As there are no apprenticeship courses covering pool training, it is essential that people attend these courses run by the Association. All of our employees have been to various parts of the SPASA Industry Training and we believe it is an excellent programme run by the Association."
What is Continuing Professional Development ?
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a commitment to ongoing learning to improve the knowledge for all in the building industry. CPD is a program designed to help people working in the building industry achieve their full potential by undertaking learning and development activities. This can include a range of activities, such as structured on-the-job training, industry-based education, committee representation, short course and university education.
All SPASA courses will now be recognised as appropriate professional development for registered practitioners within the pool and spa industry. All SPASA Training certificates will carry the SPASA branding. This is a significant milestone for the Association and its members and one that will help position the industry peak body as we move toward a more regulated, and educated, professional industry.
