Pool Plant Revalidation / Conversion

The Pool Plant Revalidation / Conversion process is for learners wanting to revalidate their current valid STA Level 3 Award in Pool Plant Operations qualification, or convert to this qualification from an acceptable equivalent.

The process provides qualified pool plant operators with an alternative to face-to-face courses, saving both time and money—and serves to positively help those learners who have issues with course accessibility.

Learners will receive the latest version of STA’s pool plant operations resource e-manual, containing the information required to maintain and operate a pool, spa and interactive water feature plant.
