    Almost assuredly for commercial pools. I doubt it for residential pools.

    Get your CPO so you have knowledge of how they operate and how to correctly use chemicals.

    Commercial, no doubt: ... strike.pdf page 31.

    You might want to check the county health department as well.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Welcome to TFP (and you too backfat)!!

    IMHO - the CPO course is B.S. It touches on some key things but is woefully inadequate for actually running and maintaining a pool. I suppose if an operator had never seen a pool before, it'd be more useful but...

    Does not need a license

    A service technician who only cleans and balances the chemicals does not need to be licensed. However, for commercial pools, they do need to be certified.

    If you want to work on plumbing, replace pumps, electrical etc, then you do need a license.

    If you're operating a business, then you do need a business license.
