FREE Industry CPD Training Dates

Industry-Supported Continuous Professional Development

(CPD) Training – (New dates will be added as soon as we receive them)

ISPE President John Cheek, FISPE has asked companies in the pool and spa trade to participate in offering selected full-day or half-day training sessions for ISPE members who wish to keep a record of their CPD points as evidence of their continuing learning and development.

Unlike ISPE seminars these training sessions may be geared towards specific products (although the ISPE is not endorsing any product or service encountered during the course of the free-to-attend training sessions).

Light refreshments will be offered and delegates will be given attendance certificates on departure indicating four CPD points for a half-day session or eight CPD points for a full day’s session.  Those attending will benefit from the free training being offered and the participating companies will be meeting ISPE members face-to-face and potential new contacts.

It is hoped that ISPE members (all categories) will take advantage of the enormous amount of information and knowledge which is being freely given by the participating companies and because space will be limited, these training sessions can only be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

We also hope to publicise more of these training days as time goes on so please keep in touch and check back regularly.  Further details from or contact the relevant companies for specific details of any particular event.

For those companies who might be interested in participating, and can offer some free training to ISPE members, please let us know what you may be able to offer. The Institute will publicise the training events on the ISPE website, through the ISPE Magazine, during ISPE seminars and SPATEX.
