APSP announces the availability of its new and improved Certified Hot Tub Technician online, self-paced course.

Designed for those that service and repair portable hot tubs, the CHTT program covers the essentials of servicing portable and permanently installed hot tubs and spas, equipment repair and replacement. Students can earn their CHTT certification by taking the course online or on-site at a regional event. Those that successfully complete the course can take the exam either on a computer at a local PSI testing center or a paper exam at a regional event. There are no experience requirements; new employees are welcome.



“We are excited to offer our members quality education to meet today’s education needs,” says Lawrence Caniglia, president and CEO of APSP. “Through making investments in our education programs, we are able to improve the industry’s workforce and keep the industry moving forward.”

Students have the option to take the full CHTT course or purchase specific module options such as water chemistry, safety and health, structures and finishes, electrical systems, hydraulics, hot tub equipment and more. The online format teaches new skills while providing an interactive and engaging training experience using videos, interactive exercises and knowledge quizzes. 



“Advancing APSP’s online education is key to ensuring our students stay current with industry and their customer demands,” says Maria O’Hara, director of education for APSP. “We are proud to offer such quality programs to our students that will enhance their lives and the industry.”

In addition to the CHTT online course, APSP also released its Certified Maintenance Specialist course in an improved online format and introduced the new online hybrid Professional Pool & Spa Operator course.
