ISRM to Present First Spa Operators Course in Wales

Water contamination is a sensitive subject for many spa owners, hydrotherapy operators and leisure facility managers in the UK. A new Spa Operators programme addressing the issues looks set to be an invaluable industry event.

Spas, in particular, are vulnerable to microbial growth due to the elevated temperatures and low volume, so correct operational procedures are essential. The new two-day Spa Operators Course and Pool Plant Operators Certificate, taking place at the Aquadome, Port Talbot in South Wales, will highlight the dangers and educate operators in this vital area of business.


This two-day course has been developed to provide all spa and hydrotherapy operators with important knowledge in relation to these sensitive facilities. The course is invaluable for operators as a stand-alone qualification or to supplement the full Pool Plant Operators Certificate. It will be the first course of its type in the region.


A three-day course for those requiring a comprehensive knowledge of pool plant operation. Certificated with site specific assignment as part of the assessment. These contribute to a realistic practical course.



Both courses are recognised by the Health and Safety Executive and the modern pool and spa facilities at the Aquadome feature facilities that can illustrate the content of the courses. Trainer and Assessor for the programme is Robbie Phillips B.A. M.I.S.R.M. Phillips, who has 35 years local authority and commercial pool and spa plant design experience, can be contacted at Sensitive Water Solutions; +44 (0)1639 822138.
