SPASA NSW gained official Registered Training Organisation (RTO) status in July, following comprehensive preparation to ensure compliance.
General Manager Spiros Dassakis says that becoming an RTO is a coup for SPASA NSW and is a vital step in the overall professionalisation of the industry.
"SPASA NSW has run training courses for more than 10 years,” he says. “Achieving RTO status means we are now able to offer nationally-recognised competency certificates to trainees participating in our courses. It’s great news for retailers, pool shops, service technicians and, of course, pool builders across the domestic and commercial arena.
