SPASA NSW training courses get official 'tick'
Industry leading training program formally accredited at state and national level
The Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) of NSW has achieved national training accreditation, thanks to its ongoing commitment to training excellence.
SPASA NSW is now a Registered Training Authority (RTO) and its industry leading training program has been formally recognised by the NSW Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Board (VETAB) for the following courses:
Certificate III- Swimming Pool Repairs, Servicing and Interior Finishes
Certificate III- Swimming Pool Building and Installation
The courses have now been placed on the National Training Information Service (NTIS) database and VETAB's Register of Accredited Courses.
"Achieving national training accreditation is an enormous coup for SPASA NSW and the swimming pool and spa industry as a whole," says Spiros Dassakis, ceo of SPASA NSW.
"We have been working hard to achieve this status and our recognition for training excellence is well deserved. This is great news for pool shops and service technicians, not to mention for pool builders across the domestic and commercial sector.
"Not only do these courses provide pool and spa professionals with a formal education, they also provide reassurance for consumers that they are dealing with qualified individuals."
Pool and spa professionals who are interested in completing some or all of the course units on offer are able to tailor their studies around their busy schedules. SPASA NSW is now offering a choice of three flexible training options:
- Full Delivery: face to face with a trainer in a classroom environment
- Blended Delivery: a combination of face to face and self-paced learning via email and online forums
- Self-Paced: learning via phone, email and online forums
SPASA also appreciates that many professionals already have advanced skills that can be formally recognised. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be applied for where the individual believes they have the necessary skills to satisfy individual unit performance criteria.
Enrolments are now being taken for courses starting in 2011. Contact SPASA NSW today on (02) 9747 6644 or visit the website www.spasa.org.au
