The PALM Academy is a Training Provider, accredited by the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group, meaning that the content and delivery of its pool operator qualifications are the most up to date, and industry relevant that they can be.
Consequently, the Academy’s trainers must meet the highest possible standards, not just in terms of their knowledge, but also of their personality and delivery style.
The ‘flagship’ qualification is the Swimming Pool Technical Operator Certificate (SPTO), and consequently, the Programme is based upon the delivery of that qualification.
Appointment as a PALM Academy trainer cannot be purchased; its Train the Trainer Programme is an intensive three part schedule that consists of:
  • An initial residential weekend
  • Observation and part delivery of a minimum of one SPTO course with a senior trainer from PALM Academy.
  • Full delivery of a minimum of one SPTO course with a senior trainer from PALM Academy

How much does the program cost?

The cost of this Programme is £1100:00 plus vat per person, which includes all accommodation and catering during the 3 day residential weekend, as well as the attendance of a Senior Academy trainer during course deliveries.

It is emphasized that this fee is not a guarantee of appointment.

What are the Essential Criteria for potential PALM Academy Trainers?

All candidates are required to provide a current, professional curriculum vitae, that will indicate:
  • Five years industry experience of pool plant operations, at a supervisory or management level
  • Proven track record in delivering training
