The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals

Certified Maintenance Specialist® Course (CMS) is internationally recognized advanced training for anyone involved with swimming pools and spas. This particular presentation of the CMS class offers  a unique opportunity for students to participate in the very first FPSIE classroom presentation of this course. As Chairman of the APSP Service Council, this “make-over” of the prior APSP Tech – I® Course has been one of  Professor FPSIE’s major projects over the past several months. He and fellow council members along with APSP staff have recorded thousands of hours of volunteer effort to make this entry level course beginner friendly yet comprehensive and fast-paced enough even for the seasoned professional attending just for certification. So, whether a complete pool/spa novice or a seasoned veteran wanting certification, this is for you.

Tuition:

  • $995   no association membership
  • $795   with approved industry association membership
  • $695   with APSP membership
