Awards & Welcome Reception

We are back! Don’t miss the welcome reception where you can meet new colleagues, see old friends, and help us honor the CPO Instructors training our pool operators of tomorrow!

The CPO program trains and certifies operators working throughout the commercial industry. We are on track to train more than 30,000 new CPOs this year, and this is all thanks to the CPO Instructors. Please help us in honoring the efforts and performance of our PHTA CPO Instructors who continue to navigate the ever-changing jurisdiction requirements, experience, skills, and talent to ensure the growth and learning of the aquatic industry.

In addition to the CPO awards, the Step Into Swim donors will be recognized for their commitment to drowning prevention and we will be awarding the Dr. R. Neil Lowry Grant. The Dr. R. Neil Lowry Grant honors a public health official or department who has made outstanding contributions to advance the public’s health and safe use of recreational water in pools, spas, and waterparks through educational, safety, operational, and technical programs.

Instructor Update

Please join us for the 2022 International CPO Instructor Update. It has been three years since we have had the privilege to deliver this meeting in person and we take pride in the outstanding work of our instructors and staff, all of whom contribute to the industry’s commitment to promote safe and healthy pool and hot tub environments. We will look back at 2022 and ahead into 2023 with continuous efforts and goals to enhance the CPO Program.
