Education & Certification
Workforce Development

 

The new PHTA Registered Pool Maintenance and Service Technician Apprenticeship Program™ is a nationwide program, registered with the U.S. Department of Labor, allowing the pool and spa profession to be more competitive with other industries that are also struggling for entry-level talent. And, because the PHTA apprenticeship program uses industry-developed competency and ANSI-approved standards developed by PHTA, employers and apprentices are assured that the program delivers the content needed to develop qualified service professionals.

This program is also approved by the Arizona Registrar of Contractors.
