Online Certified Service Technician (CST)

Members $709 | Non-Members $859

This online self-paced course takes you through the Pool & Hot Tub Professional Association's (formerly APSP)  Service Tech Manual and gives you what you need to know to conform to industry standards. You will be able to explain common problems with pool finishes and how to repair them; keep pools running more efficiently with a better understanding of circulation, filtration, hydraulics and electricity; grow your practical knowledge and gain troubleshooting skills and resources; and distinguish yourself as an experienced and knowledgeable service technician.

You do not need to have completed the CMS certification in order to take this course and sit for the CST exam, but you will be expected to have acquired the core knowledge covered in that course. We recommend that you have at least 1-2 years of experience in pool/spa service and repair to expect to be successful on the certification exam.

Who Should Attend: The CST course is for individuals with at least 1-2 years of experience in pool and spa service and repair.

Course Fee Includes:  Online Course Modules, PHTPA Service Tech Manual, Workbook and in-person Exam
