Residential Pools and Spas

SPASA launches free 12-week business training program

April 6, 2020

SPASA Australia has launched a webinar-based training program, which will be offered free to the entire pool and spa industry. The program will run for 12 weeks with the first webinar commencing on Tuesday April 14.

Lindsay McGrath, CEO of SPASA, says the aim is to prepare the industry’s business professionals so they are ready when the current crisis eases. [See video below]

“Covid-19 continues to be a challenging time for all of us,” he says. “What we know will determine how we survive this unprecedented event when it’s over.”

He says that is why SPASA Australia wants businesses to think ahead of the curve.

“We’ve developed a practical and dynamic program which provides students with the opportunity to register and undertake a range of webinar-based training programs covering business, sales, leadership and management.”

Each of the training programs provides students with a sample of learnings from each of SPASA’s nationally accredited business qualifications.

“Best of all, the webinar-based training programs are free of charge. What better way for SPASA Australia to invest in the industry than to better prepare pool and spa businesses for when the world and trading conditions return to normal,” he says.

SPASA Training will deliver the 12 training webinars over a 12-week period across all six of SPASA’s business qualifications, acting as an introduction to the modules. Each webinar is 60 minutes in duration and will canvass all major points covered in the units of competency within each of the business qualifications.

The webinar-based training programs will take place on each Tuesday across the 12 weeks.
