Accreditation for pool servicing is an important part of becoming a pool care technician.
The majority of Jim’s Pool Care franchise owners around Australia have completed at minimum a Certificate III in Swimming Pool and Spa Service in recent years and understand the benefits to their customers and their own business.
Peter Holland from SPASA Australia recently met with Brett Blair, general manager of Jim’s Pool Care Australia, to begin working in collaboration to build and improve on the course integration of the Pool & Spa Certificate into one of Australia’s largest franchise systems.
The new course requirements will ensure all franchise owners will be applying the best up-to-date practices when servicing swimming pools around Australia, ensuring they are certified to do so and ensuring the continuation of quality standards within the industry.
Benefit to the whole industry
Holland says the benefit of certification is not just for the pool professional but also for the public and pool owners around Australia.
Blair says he is happy to support SPASA Australia’s efforts to educate pool professionals which will in turn help to support pool owners all over Australia, and says the longer term goal of Jim’s Pool Care is to have an accredited workforce of pool care professionals who can provide feedback into the accreditation process, which in turn will enable more of the pool and spa industry to work according to this great national standard.
“For Jim’s Pool Care it will also help more than 100 franchise owners build the skills required to be the best in the pool industry,” he says.
Holland was equally excited about the collaboration.
“It is great to have the opportunity to enhance the industry standards, and great to work with Brett and Jim’s Pool Care in order to do so. The idea of having all new franchisees enrolled and immediately educated in the best practices of the industry is always good,” he says.
