Macquatics Training - "Dedicated to improving the quality of Swim Centre Management"

Macquatics Training in progress
Training Poolies for more than 30 years. Enjoyable and rewarding.
Macquatics On-Site Swim Centre Training provides training in swim centre operations, supervision and management. What's more, we come to you.

The idea of providing swimming pool training on-site is now regarded as the most effective and affordable method of having staff at swimming pools trained and receive a formal TAFE qualification.

Your organisation could save thousands of dollars with Macquatics On-Site Training coming to you at your swim centre, anywhere in Australia or New Zealand.



What is covered during the On-Site Macquatics Training?

Campbelltown Catholic Club's beautiful pools/gym.
Trained staff + modern equipment = excellent water quality.
  • Water Testing - the how, when, where and why of both pool and incoming water supply testing is discussed, demonstrated and taught to all students, to ensure that they can do all the necessary tests. This is an area of essential competence.
  • Water chemistry - informing and not confusing students on what happens to their swimming pool water when the different chemicals are added. Then, how much to add, and especially, how to safely handle all chemicals.
  • Chemical Identification - knowing the chemicals, correct labelling, storage, handling and disposal of spilt chemical.
  • Active and effective supervision.

    Supervised and careful manual addition of acid.
  • Complete swimming pool safety, for both customers and staff.
  • Local issues - any concerns students have are discussed.
  • Plant and equipment identification, maintenance and operation.
  • Swim centre promotion, customer service and accident prevention.
