SPASA Australia has appointed Peter Holland as its registered training organisation (RTO) manager to expand its training and education division nationwide.
Holland has more than 20 years’ specialist experience in vocational education and training, and was involved in an industrial designer capacity in developing material for the Cert III & IV in Swimming Pool and Spa Service courses. These are now the benchmark in nationally accredited qualifications for the swimming pool and spa industry.
Holland will be supported by SPASA’s well-known and longstanding employee, Vicki Taylor, who takes on the role of training liaison officer.
“This significant investment in education and training supports our commitment to qualify and upskill the current swimming pool and spa industry as well as promote career paths for new entrants through traineeships, qualifications and other professional development opportunities”, says SPASA CEO Lindsay McGrath.
SPASA COO Spiros Dassakis says there are about 5000 RTOs in Australia, but SPASA is the only one dedicated entirely to the swimming pool and spa industry.
“As the default national educator, SPASA is well positioned to be the key differentiator of our industry’s performance and economic success,” he says.
“The continual promotion of the swimming pool and spa industry with qualified a workforce validates who we are in the eyes of consumers, regulators and government. Most of all, it provides each of us with a sense of accomplishment.”
