The short answer to that is no. The CPO course meets the criteria set forth for operating a commercial facility as it covers all aspects of running a facility from paperwork to troubleshooting equipment issues.
The PCCR course is 100% water chemistry. As such, some of the water recommendations can be used for residential water but not for commercial applications.
Personally, I prefer the in person sessions as it allows for more direct communication and focus.
If you choose the fusion option for the Certified Pool Operator course, you will be able to study around your schedule and at your pace. The fusion option allows access for 6 months to complete the online portion and 1 year to take the exam.
The zoom option (limited time) offers the same benefits of the in person class without the costs involved with traveling to the course.
As we are all about water chemistry education, if you don’t see what you need, just call the office and we will work with you to fulfill your needs. We will teach classes of 1 student if it comes down to that.
