Practical Pool Management and Practical Pool Management Plus are nationally-recognized pool operator training programs developed and taught by aquatic safety expert Shawn P. DeRosa. Certification is provided by Aquatic Safety Research Group, LLC. The textbook, included with the course, is the Complete Swimming Pool Reference, Third Edition, by Tom Griffiths, Ed.D., with contributing chapters by Shawn DeRosa.

For over a decade, our Aquatic Risk Management Series of workshops have provided pool and beach managers cutting-edge information on managing risks at aquatic facilities.  These one-day training programs were designed to provide aquatic managers information and resources not generally found in other training programs. As the field of aquatic changes, so do our workshops, helping keep our A.R.M. Series of programs at the forefront of the profession.  Developed in concert with Dr. Tom Griffiths, our Aquatic Risk Management workshops offer a comprehensive approach to managing risks at pools and beaches! Certification is provided by Aquatic Safety Research Group, LLC.

To request a PPM, PPM+ or A.R.M. Series workshop for your agency, please contact Shawn DeRosa.  A minimum of 15 studentsis needed. Classes are typically only scheduled upon request of a hosting agency.  Volume pricing opportunities may exist

Pool Mangement course by Water Safety Expert Shawn DeRosa

Practical Pool Management
$149.00

Practical Pool Management is a fast-paced one-day pool operator course which highlights the most important topics in pool operations, maintenance and safety including circulation, filtration and water chemistry.  This program is ideal for those in the hotel/motel business or for persons, such as head lifeguards, with some shared responsibility for the daily operation of a public or semi-public swimming pool.  While this program does meet some state pool operator training requirements, we would recommend the two-day Practical Pool Management PLUS program for those persons directly responsible for overseeing all aspects of swimming pool operations.

Check here to see if PPM or PPM+ are "approved" courses in your jurisdiction.  If approval is pending, or if your local health department is not familiar with the courses, we are more than happy to speak to your local health agent and provide whatever documents are necessary to receive approval in that jurisdiction. The two-day PPM+ course was specifically designed to meet or exceed the training requirements in all states.  The one-day (9 hour) PPM course is not recognized in states that require a minimum 16 hour course, such as Florida and Alaska.
