It has been over two years since the pandemic changed the way we do business. Zoom became our preferred method of communication, travel consisted of walking from your kitchen to the backyard, and our vocabulary increased with concepts like asynchronous learning and social distancing.
Through all of this upheaval, pool and hot tub industries experienced historic growth in the residential market and unique challenges for the commercial segment - each creating the need for water safety education, changing management practices, and an understanding of public health and safety issues related to pools.
It is within this landscape that PHTA is hosting the 19th World Aquatic Health Conference in person on October 12-14 in Houston, Texas! With our first in-person WAHC in three years, PHTA is pulling out all the stops to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to spend time with long-time friends and meet new people who share your passions.
More than ever before, WAHC 2022 will be a celebration of what our industry has achieved and how we will continue to evolve and grow.
At the crux of your personal and business success is training and competency. WAHC is the perfect opportunity to gain incredible education and maintain your certification. As an IACET Accredited Provider, PHTA offers CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard.
