Queensland Pool Safety Inspections Courses

In response to the escalation of Coronavirus, and following advice from the Australian Government - the 11067NAT Course in Swimming Pool Safety Inspections will now be delivered via WEBINAR, rather than Face to Face. Where any Face to Face reference is made on this page regarding the delivery of this course, please understand that this is now being delivered via a WEBINAR. This process is very simple - similar to Skype or Face Time.

Providing you have access to a computer and reliable internet, you can participate in this special program from the comfort of your own home. This means there is no need for you to travel to a training class room, and no need for you to have any face to face contact with other students. You will still receive the same ‘class room’ experience, being able to ‘attend’ the training program from the comfort of your own home, and receive the same qualification.

After you have enrolled, all of your training materials will be posted to you. You will receive an email invitation to attend the session, all you have to do is ‘click' on the invitation and you will now be logged into the program. Your trainer, Jacqui Murphy, will appear on your computer screen ready to deliver the same quality training program that you would normally participate in via a Face to Face session. You can still ask ‘live’ questions of your trainer and engage with other students during the program.

The only component of this course that will be different relates to your practical assessment. For this assessment, you will be required to make a short video of yourself conducting an inspection of a pool barrier and then email this to your trainer.

Please contact Jacqui Murphy directly on m: 0411 461 432 to find out more about his unique training opportunity.

Currently there are approximately 350,000 swimming pools located in the state of Queensland.
