PHTA Now Accepting Submissions for Education Partner Program

(Alexandria, Va.) - The Pool and Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) is pleased to launch its new Education Partner Program.

The Education Partner Program provides a centralized location to help students maintain their records and ensure they have the education they need to maintain their continuing education. It also lets students know about available training options to meet their certification requirements.

Companies can participate by becoming an Education Partner. Education Partners have their programs reviewed and approved for PHTA credits. Approved programs will be included on the educational calendar on the PHTA website and promoted to students looking for continuing education opportunities. They will also be shared on PHTA’s social media and e-newsletters.

PHTA maintains third-party accreditation by the International Association on Continuing Education and Training (IACET). “Education Partner approved programs are required to meet or exceed the IACET standard, which elevates not only individual programs but the pool and spa industry’s education as a whole,” said PHTA Vice President of Education and Events Jeanne Mendelson. “Through the Education Partner Program, PHTA is striving to develop the highest of quality professionals.”

PHTA is now accepting Education Partner Program submissions. This will be an exciting way for companies to share their expertise and raise the level of professionalism in the industry.

The Education Partner Program webpage has additional information, as well as the Education Partner Program Agreement and submission forms for programs and instructors. The Education Partner Program is replacing PHTA’s Accreditation Program.

For more information, please contact Jeanne Mendelson, PHTA Vice President of Education and Events, at or 703.838.0083.
