PWTAG Accredited Pool Plant Operator - Virtual Practical & Assessment Only

While pools were closed, we adapted this qualification and split the theory and practical elements into two courses.

This course covers the practical sessions and assessment on a virtual platform and is for those who have already completed their theoretical training including e-learning and theory assessments and will be able to access their facility for the assessment.

Due to current Covid-19 guidelines and to ensure everyone's safety, we will be keeping the amount of time you spend at the pool to a minimum so the virtual practical will consist of:

  • 1 day Zoom Webinar - During this session, the tutor will cover the last of your practical topics, then you will carry out your Exam assessment.
  • 1 x 30 minute slot for you to carry out your water testing assessment. You will need access to your facility on this day for your allocated slot. You will also require the ability to live video call the tutor whilst performing your water test and have access to a working water test kit.
  • 1 x post course assignment submitted within 3 weeks of the above.
  • Course fees

    The final payment to cover your practical sessions and assessment will be £149.50.

    If you have already paid for your course, email [email protected] for a voucher to book with.
