Advanced Swimming Pool Water Chemistry Certificate Class with Pool Industry veteran and water chemistry expert Rudy Stankowitz 

The curriculum of this course includes discussion/demonstration on the reactivity series of metals, chemical equilibrium, principles of acids-bases, gas-liquid equilibrium, cavitation, dissociation, oxidation-reduction, nitrification, covalent complexation, and the analysis of swimming pool water chemistry.  

This is an advanced pool water chemistry class, it is NOT a class for beginners or an ‘introduction’ to pool water chemistry. This session requires at least a year or two minimum of existing pool care experience/knowledge.                   

Award Winning CPO Instructor Rudy Stankowitz
I began teaching and consulting due to an injury that pulled me out of the field (swimming pool service), and I immediately felt it clicked. The classes have been just a small part of it. For me, the best part comes from all of the people I have had the opportunity to meet either here in the US or abroad. Those relationships, the friendships I have gained, and the experiences we have shared have made these classes an awesome and rewarding journey.

Now, a little over halfway through my 6th year as an instructor, I wanted to take a moment to mention how lucky I am to have met the folks I have met along the way and to have received accolades each year for doing something I love to do. Thank you! – Rudy Stankowitz
