Certification

As demand for pools, spas, and hot tubs continues to grow, a consumer should look to hire a professional who has the skills and training needed to manage and maintain the complexities of building, installing, maintaining, or servicing pools, spas, or hot tubs.  

PHTA certification represents excellence in achievement and demonstrates proficiency in the pool and hot tub professional. Certified professionals have completed rigorous testing and are required to commit to ongoing professional development and recertification.  

Credential holders have a proven skillset and have shown a broad knowledge of their specialty. Certification reflects a deep personal commitment and a sense of accountability, inspiring credibility and confidence in the individual's professional knowledge.
