Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this course has been cancelled.

Each spring, Hastings Prince Edward Public Health offers a free training course covering the important elements of safe pool and spa operation. Learn how to prevent the spread of communicable disease, create a safer environment for patrons and staff, and avoid facility closures.

This course is intended primarily for pool and spa owners/operators and lifeguards.

The course provides information on such topics as: legal responsibilities, infectious diseases, water chemistry and testing, recirculation systems, facility management, and grounds for facility closure.

  • bring a non-medical mask, physical distancing may not be possible during your appointment

  • reschedule your appointment if a family member or other close contact is ill
  • use accessible buttons to open doors, instead of handles
