SPASA NSW training programs have no borders with accessible and affordable training now available in QLD thanks to the Building Services Authority.
The Building Services Authority (BSA) in Queensland has given the green light to the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of NSW (SPASA NSW) to deliver the Certificate III in Swimming Pool Repairs, Servicing and Interior Finishes and Certificate IV in Swimming Pool and Spa Building nationally accredited courses in Queensland.
“It means we are now able to offer Nationally Accredited Training to Pool & Spa Technicians and Builders in Queensland – which is great news for the entire industry and consumers alike,” said SPASA NSW CEO Spiros Dassakis.
“Since becoming a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in 2009, SPASA NSW has been committed to providing comprehensive training courses and, thus, enhancing the skill sets and educational levels of all sectors of our industry.”
SPASA NSW’s training courses, which have been formally recognised by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), are specially tailored to the swimming pool and spa industry’s specific requirements.
“Our training programs cater for the needs of retailers, pool shops, service technicians and pool builders across the domestic and commercial arena,” said Spiros.
“Those who undertake the courses offered by SPASA NSW achieve nationally-recognised competency certificates to trainees participating in our courses. This provides peace of mind for consumers that they are dealing with well-trained professionals.”
“SPASA NSW continues to plan for the future training needs of the industry and is currently developing learning materials to roll out the new Certificate III and Certificate IV Courses proposed by CPSISC for the pool and spa service sector.”
Pool and spa professionals who are interested in completing some or all of the course units on offer are able to tailor their studies around their busy schedules via flexible training options.
SPASA NSW also appreciates that many professionals already have advanced skills that can be formally recognised. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) can be applied for where the individual believes they have the necessary skills to satisfy individual unit performance criteria.
Enrolments are now being taken for courses starting in 2012. Contact SPASA NSW on 02 9630 6300 or visit the website: www.spasa.org.au
