Pool Plant qualifications expire after a period of three years.

You can do this by either attending a face-to-face revalidation course or completing the online Pool Plant Operator Revalidation which can be found here

Once qualified, it is recommended that pool operators are reassessed annually in the workplace for competence as a minimum in water testing.
