About TURNAGE & ASSOCIATES
In association with the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance/PHTA (formally the NSPF & APSP), Turnage & Associates began teaching public and private Certified Pool Operator (CPO) classes in 2003. The PHTA grew in its offerings of specialized education and Turnage and Associates found itself in the
perfect position to assist the PHTA in offering these trainings to the commercial and residential swimming pool industries.
Turnage & Associates believes that in order to have a solid organization, a safe swimming pool environment and to limit the liability of operating a swimming pool, the personnel of these facilities need to have quality
training. Turnage & Associates is dedicated to providing training, consulting and inspection services to satisfy the needs of the swimming pool industry.
