Aquatic Facility Operator Course Fall 2023

The Aquatic Facility Operator (AFO) program is a state-of-the-art five-year certification for professionals managing and operating aquatic facilities. Individuals who obtain the AFO credential are knowledgeable in the systematic approach to pool operations including pool chemistry, management, pool safety, and risk reduction. The 18-hour course features the AFO Manual, which is revised every three years to stay current with changing technology.

The text is reader-friendly and enjoyable. At the end of the course, students will receive 1.5 CEUs and a certificate of completion. Those who successfully pass the exam will become certified aquatic facility operators. Certification is valid for five years.
