About Your Instructor
Hello, my name is Lauren Broom and I teach the Certified Pool Operator Course (CPO)®. I am a certified instructor through the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance®.
I attended the University of Central Florida where I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. I am currently a Registered Sanitarian (certification in public health). I have 16 1/2 years experience in the inspection of commercial pools in Florida as a commercial public pool inspector from the Florida Department of Health along with recreational waterborne disease outbreak investigations.
As a CPO Instructor I take part in other PHTA Committees and Councils. I hold a spot on the PHTA CPO Advisory Board and a spot on the PHTA-2 Standard Writing Committee.
Recently in 2019, I became an adjunct instructor for Valencia College’s Accelerated Skills Training Team to teach the Certified Pool Operator Course® CPO® as part of their new 10 week Certified Apartment Maintenance Technician certification in Osceola and Orange County campuses.
In April 2021, I will be the official CPO Instructor for the new Pool & Spa Apprenticeship Program for the state of California.
In 2020, I became a regular monthly columnist for the online pool service publication Service Industry News. You can go there and read my column to enjoy more aquatic subjects.
In 2021, I will be the CPO Instructor for United Pool Association
(UPA) and Independent Pool Spa Service Association (IPSSA) members.
Finally, 2021 I will become an authorized OSHA trainer for OSHA 10 & OSHA 30 courses. Intention is to be able to teach these courses for the aquatic industry to improve safety and health to its workers.
I am teaching the Certified Pool Operator® Course to educate the aquatic professional on importance of maintaining a swimming pool facility for the health and safety of their patrons.
