Swimming Pool Operation Technology

The New York City Health Department no longer offers the Swimming Pool Operator's Course.

In New York City, a Pool Operator Certificate is required to operate a pool in a health club, residential apartment building, hotel and or other location where the public may have access to the pool. The certificate ensures that the operator has been trained in the safe and effective operation and maintenance of pool treatment equipment. Visit the New York State Department of Health website for a list of approved courses and providers.
