Pool Operator courses that are able to meet physical distancing guidelines and other health measures currently in place from the Provincial Health Office may still be scheduled to run.
See the “schedule” page for upcoming courses. Contact the facility directly for most current course information.
Pool Operator courses are taught by highly knowledgeable aquatic professionals in each region of the province. They are "the industry standard in swimming pool operations and maintenance" and, with outstanding satisfaction reported from over 1,000 certified candidates, BCRPA Pool Operator courses are becoming an employment requirement for an increasing number of organizations.

Exciting New Changes:
The BCRPA has undertaken the revision and upgrading of both the Level I & II Pool Operator courses. The new materials are designed to provide BC specific content and specifically, to reference the new BC Pool Regulations that were released in 2010 and updated in 2012. In addition, the upgrades ensure that we have consistent delivery of important course content across the province.
Some of the new features of our upgrading include:
- New Participant Manuals for Level I and II which will act as a rich take-away resource
- Standardized PowerPoint slides for Instructors
- Removal of the NSPF manual as a requirement for the Level I course. (This great reference book will still be available for purchase through the BCRPA. However, Participant Manuals will have the most relevant information incorporated.)
- BC specific content
- References to the BC Pool Regulations and Guidelines
