We’re an STA (Safety Training Awards), RLSS (Royal Life Saving Society UK), QNUK (Qualifications Network) and Highfield Qualifications Approved Training Centre. With experienced trainers and tutors and many courses available face to face as well as online we’re first choice in our industry.

Our most popular course right now is the accredited level 3 Pool Plant Operator Course, which once completed allows you to run and operate your pool efficiently and safely.

Following the huge number of incidents relating to badly managed pools across the UK this course is the essential course to ensure organisational and professional ongoing compliance and accountability. Being able to demonstrate ongoing training and development of staff will help improve safety for all involved but also help with any investigations should the worst happen.

This qualification is aimed at staff who are in positions of responsibility over pool plant operations such as site maintenance, leisure managers, duty managers.
