Online Theory

This course is being conducted via Microsoft Teams.

Candidates must ensure they have access to a laptop or computer for the session which has both a camera
and microphone. Mobile devices may causes issues. It is a requirement of the course for quality assurance
reasons that it is recorded and all candidates are visible at all times—although obviously we realise people
may need to visit the bathroom etc

Written Assessment

This is evidenced via completion of written worksheets. These need to be completed and returned to an acceptable

Pool Water Test

In order to complete the practical pool water testing assessment candidates must have access to a pool 

water testing kit and pool water. This element can be video recorded and submitted to the tutor, or 

completed via Teams / Zoom etc. Whichever method is used, however, it must allow for recording, have a suitable working camera and sound capabilities. The course tutor will explain the expectations to pass the practical assessment during the course. 


The recordings and worksheets must be submitted within 14 days of the completion of the course. This is so
that certification is not held up for the rest of the course. Should they not be received in time candidates may
fail and have to pay an admin fee to access another course (£25).
