Jim’s Pool Care teams up with SPASA Australia
Jim’s Pool Care has recently joined in collaboration with the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia to develop a streamline accreditation for franchisees.
Accreditation for pool servicing may not, at first glance, seem like an obvious necessity, however, it is an important part of becoming a pool care technician. The majority of Jim’s Pool Care franchise owners around Australia have completed, at minimum, a Certificate III in Swimming Pool and Spa Service in recent years and understand the benefits to their customers and their own business this brings.
Peter Holland from SPASA Australia, recently met with Brett Blair, General Manager of Jim’s Pool Care Australia, to begin working in collaboration to build and improve on the course integration of this Pool & Spa Certificate into one of Australia’s largest franchise systems. The new course requirements will ensure that all franchise owners will be applying the best up-to-date practices when servicing swimming pools around Australia, ensuring they are certified to do so and ensuring the continuation of quality standards within the industry.
The benefit of certification is not just for the pool professional but also for the public and pool owners around Australia. The longer-term goal of SPASA and Jim’s Pool Care is to have an accredited workforce of pool care professionals who can provide feedback into the accreditation process, which in turn will enable more of the Pool and Spa industry to work according to this great national standard. For Jim’s Pool Care it will also help more than 100 of their franchise owners build the skills required to be the best in the pool industry.
Brett noted that he was ‘happy to support SPASA Australia’s efforts to educate pool professionals which will in turn, help to support pool owners all over Australia.’ Peter was equally as excited with the collaboration, ‘It is great to have the opportunity to enhance the industry standards, and great to work with Brett and Jim’s Pool Care in order to do so. The idea of having all new franchisees enrolled and immediately educated in the best practices of the industry is always good.’
