Swimming Pool Water Testing

The four-hour Swimming Pool Water Testing qualification is perfect for those responsible for carrying out routine pool water tests. Many lifeguards for example must test pool water as part of their job role, and this qualification gives learners the basic information and skills necessary to competently test swimming pool and spa water, whilst providing a basic understanding of the outcomes of those tests.

On the course you will learn how to use a photometer and comparator, understand pool water readings, where to take test samples from and much more.

How Will the Qualification Benefit You?
