Pool Barrier Inspection Course - QLD

QLD - Pool Barrier Inspection Training

The 10660NAT Course in Swimming Pool Safety Inspections is a nationally accredited course, generally delivered from 8am to 4pm over 3 days, however, in response to the escalation of Coronavirus, and following advice from the Australian Government - SPASA will now be delivering the 10660NAT course via WEBINAR, rather than Face to Face. This process is very simple - similar to Skype or Face Time. 

Providing you have access to a computer and reliable internet, you can participate in this special program from the comfort of your own home. This means there is no need for you to travel to a training class room, and no need for you to have any face to face contact with other students. You will still receive the same ‘class room’ experience, being able to ‘attend’ the training program from the comfort of your own home, and receive the same qualification.

After you have enrolled, all of your training materials will be posted to you. You will receive an email invitation to attend the session, all you have to do is ‘click' on the invitation and you will now be logged into the program. Your trainer, Jacqui Murphy, will appear on your computer screen ready to deliver the same quality training program that you would normally participate in via a Face to Face session. You can still ask ‘live’ questions of your trainer and engage with other students during the program. Please contact Jacqui Murphy directly on m: 0411 461 432 to find out more about his unique training opportunity.

There are no pre-requisite requirements for enrolment in this course. Students from various backgrounds including swimming pool technicians, building and pest inspectors, builders, fencing installers are eligible to participate with no qualifications or experience. All students who successfully completed this course are eligible to become qualified Pool Safety Inspectors.

Course participant numbers are limited to a maximum of 15 students per class to ensure students receive appropriate one on one training and support.
