PHTA (NSPF) Course Dates

The Pool People Courses

Course Dates

As the man who brought the PHTA (NSPF)® CPO® courses to Cyprus, Tony Bell, the Director and owner of The Pool People Ltd would love to be leading the courses, 7 days per week but it’s just not possible!

Certified Pool Operator - The Pool People, Cyprus

As well as running a business whose team ‘’walk the walk’’ of the PHTA (NSPF) CPO practices, Tony also offers a ‘’mentor’’ service to PHTA (NSPF) CPO’s who he has trained over the past 12+ years.

Even those who are considering taking the course, regularly call into the office to ask Tony’s advice and help- and it’s given freely to the person asking: if they are serious about making water safer and healthier to swim in

Tony is serious about helping them!
