Making Waves Swim School is proud to provide the New Jersey Pool Director course.

The New Jersey Pool Director course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and tools to safely and successfully manage all aspects of recreational bathing facilities. To that end, there is a focus on understanding the requirements of N.J.A.C 8:26, the Public Recreational Bathing Code, and how to navigate those requirements at various types of aquatic facilities.

While the course is invaluable for anyone operating non-private swimming pools, the New Jersey Pool Director course is an approved course to satisfy the requirement of N.J.A.C. 8:26-5.2(a)2, which states, “For pools larger than 2,000 square feet, the designated adult supervisor shall possess pool director training certification. Current adult pool supervisors shall have until January 16, 2019, to obtain certification”. The new deadline for this certification is December 31, 2019.

We are excited to announce that we have been approved by the New Jersey Department of Health to temporarily conduct our pool director course entirely online! Due to the social distancing measures being taken, many Pool Director candidates have been forced to cancel previously scheduled courses. With summer quickly approaching, it is important to obtain Pool Director certification prior to the opening of pools over 2,000 square feet. The approval we have obtained allows us to properly train and test candidates remotely at this time. Once social distancing measures are relaxed and groups can gather, future New Jersey Pool Director course will revert back to the full day in person format.

The format of the course will remain the same with training and testing taking place in a one-day course which is from 9 am- 5 pm and certifications being valid for 3 years. All you’ll need is access to a computer to access web-based platforms (Zoom or YouTube) and a webcam, phone with video camera, or device with video camera capability (for ID verification). Registration will be closed three days prior to each class in order to allow time for shipping course materials (book and code supplement) to participants.
