PSATC enrolling second appenticeship class of in its inaugural year
The Pool & Spa Apprenticeship and Training Committee (PSATC) has opened enrollment for the second class of apprentices in its inaugural year of operation. Enrollment ends September 15th. Reserve your spot before all seats are filled by emailing Jennifer Farwell: email@example.com.
In May, the program was the first of its kind to receive approval from the United States Department of Labor. The committee is currently working to make sure the quality of its national apprenticeship program is consistent with the high level of education and operation that its California state program currently enjoys.
“We welcome the approval of this groundbreaking program that will provide an opportunity for a career path in the pool service industry on a National level,” says David Hawes, chairman of the PSATC.
The goal in founding the PSATC was to establish an approach to workforce development and quality assurance that combines related technical instruction and on-the-job training. Apprentices are trained to the degree of competency expected of a journeyman, to meet the demands of our industry.
The PSATC launched its California program in early May after gaining approval by the California Division of Apprenticeship Standards.
“It is the gold-standard program of education and training for pool and spa service professionals here in California and now across the nation,” Hawes says. “We have built a career path to assist both employers and apprentices in reaching their respective goals. As our motto states, ‘PSATC works for you.’ ”
