The NET Health District Order 2013-1 provides for the inspection and permitting of public swimming pools and spas in Smith County. Training is a critical part of the process. The owner of a public swimming pool or spa in Smith County must have at least one person responsible for the facility that has attended an annual training provided by or approved by the NET Health. The training will include an overview of the design and maintenance of public swimming pools and spas, operation requirements for water chemistry and documentation, signage requirements, fencing requirements, safety issues to include entrapment hazards and equipment, as well as the state and local regulations for public swimming pools and spas.
Upon completion of the training a certificate will be issued to the participant. Additional training courses will be provided as needed with at least three per year presented. An individual may also receive a certificate by attending a training course approved by the NET Health. Upon presenting the credentials of the course, the individual may pay the $65.00 and register in the system. A registry will be maintained by the NET Health.Thank you for your commitment to public health.
