IRLearning launches course to introduce participants to the pool and spa industry
The Institute of Research and Learning (IRLearning) has launched a new eLearning course – Introduction to the Swimming Pool and Spa industry.
To thrive as a pool shop retailer or a service technician, you need a solid understanding of the industry, a commitment to safety and safe work practices and great product knowledge. You also need to be great with customers and love problem solving.
“The Introduction to the Swimming Pool and Spa industry course is the first in a series of courses to be released by IRLearning that delivers the required content for participants to learn in an easy, self-paced online format, anytime and from anywhere,” says IRLearning general manager, Wendy Donaldson.
“Supported by SPASA and designed and developed in collaboration with leading experts in the swimming pool and spa industry, this new course meets the needs and requirements of pool shop retailers and service technicians, with relevant modules that complement in-house induction training.
“If you’re new to the swimming pool and spa industry or want to learn more about pools and spas, this introductory course offers the ideal learning opportunity to fast track your industry knowledge,” she says.
Donaldson says courses like this help attract new entrants to the industry and keep existing employees upskilled.
They also support the promotion of career pathways by providing entry level education that will lead into the Certificate III Retail and Certificate III in Service Technician qualifications.
