Continuing to meet and exceed the needs of advanced pool/spa builders, the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) is offering a new line-up of programs for the 2013 International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo in Las Vegas. Hosting three-day courses on Nov. 12-14, the expo gives industry professionals the opportunity to earn the technical hours they need in order to achieve their career certifications.
Attracting attendees who are looking for a professional development experience, the APSP Pool and Spa Construction Course (PSCC) offers insight on how to build quality, energy-efficient, or even more challenging pools. The comprehensive program walks builders and designers through the APSP Builder’s Manual, including tips about what they need to know in order to build better business systems.
For attendees willing to go an extra step, the APSP presents the Energy Efficiency Certificate (EEC) program. This course is intended to help builders design, install and pass inspection while creating consumer-friendly and energy-efficient pools and spas. Discussing energy-efficient options with clients will help distinguish builders from their competitors.
“The builder program at [the] expo expands on the industry ‘bible’ of pool building, the APSP Builder’s Manual,” said Michael Reed, director of professional development, APSP. “The Pool & Spa Construction Course, along with the Energy Efficiency Certificate Program, is designed to teach best practices and new approaches that will give professionals the edge they need when competing for new business.”
Speakers for these courses include Rick English, owner, English Consulting (PSCC); and Steve Barnes, safety and compliance manager, Pentair Aquatic Systems (EEC course).
