John Szymanski is the primary instructor on all CPO®
Certification classes conducted by Certified Pool Trainers of Iowa & Minnesota®. He has thirty plus years experience in pool operations and chemical treatment of water.
“I enjoy teaching CPO®
watching the smiles when the operator finally understands exactly what
causes a particular problem and how that problem can be easily
solved. I feel my job as CPO® Certification instructor is to take the complex and make it easy to understand. I will teach you that it not necessary to know it all, but to know where the answers can be found.”
We are proud to present the National Certified Pool Operator Certification Course.
This course is required by the states of Minnesota & Iowa.
