I belong to an organization that has a pool and has always paid someone to take care of it. They want to get me certified as a pool operator so that I can take over those duties and hopefully save them money. The health dept options they accept are a 3 day in person class (which I can't do because of my real job) and an all online course. Looking at the link they sent the only thing that mentions time is that you have 30 days to complete. There is no mention of the time commitment it will take to go through all the courses and complete the test. Has anyone here taken one of these online courses that can help me figure out what I'm getting myself in to.
