Need a service license? The Florida Swimming Pool Contractor Pre-Licensure Certification Course is your answer!
The Swimming Pool & Spa Service
Certification Course is a 60 Hour course (Including WS, WC, BP, and
L&R) and helps you meet the education requirements of Florida
Statue 489.111 and substitutes for three years of experience. This is
not an exam prep course (it does not address the business portion of the
exam, it does not prepare you for the exam and it does not provide you
with the books you need for the exam).
The course must be taken as part of the FSPA pre-licensure program.
Taking courses offered elsewhere will not count toward the pre-license
After successful completion of all course requirements (Passing Exam
required) a certificate will be awarded to submit to the CILB with
application for licensure. As part of qualification for licensure the
Applicant is required to meet required one (1) year/2000 hours of
experience under the guidance of a licensed contractor.
