Well-known pool and spa industry member Bernie Skelton has taken on a new role as National Training Manager for Lo-Chlor.

He was rumoured to be retiring, but Lo-Chlor persuaded him to remain on the books by offering him this exciting newly created position.

Skelton has a wealth of experience in the pool industry and an extensive knowledge of its many facets from the ground upwards. He has been in the industry for more than 30 years – 20 of which were spent as Lo-Chlor’s Queensland Sales Manager. Additionally, his experience of pool shops has given him an insight into what is expected from both sides of the counter.

He will also be one of the valuable resources used by the National Swimming Pool Institute of Australia (NSPI) in their industry training accreditation program.

NSPI’s David Close says the institute has formed relationships with industry suppliers who run training courses in the aim of bringing the standard of industry training up to a consistent national level, which can then count towards NSPI accreditation.

Lo-Chlor is one of the businesses that the NSPI has developed a relationship with, and the institute is seeking the cooperation of any supplier who is running industry training courses.
