SPASA Certification & Accreditation is a continuing professional development (CPD) education and training program available only to individuals, employees and business members of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA).
The program provides recognition for members within the SPASA network for their professional skills and commitment to ongoing learning and development. It also reflects SPASA’s commitment to its members through educating consumers, regulators and government about the professionalism of SPASA Certified and Accredited members.

HOW DOES MY BUSINESS BECOME SPASA ACCREDITED?

SPASA appreciates the time constraints on members, and therefore the program provides multiple pathways to qualify for Certification and Accreditation.
