APSP logoThe Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) has announced that Jeff Mitchell, from Dynasty Pools, Quail Valley, Calif., is the recipient of the APSP 2011 Certified Building Professional (CBP) of the Year Award.

The CBP of the Year Award is given annually to one CBP who has advanced the pool building profession through outstanding achievements and dedication to the industry. The peer nominated award was presented to Mitchell during the APSP International Awards of Excellence reception in Las Vegas on November 1. 

Mitchell has served on chapter and regional APSP boards, on the APSP Builders Council for 7 years, and is currently serving on the APSP Board of Directors. In addition, he serves as the Builders Council liaison to the APSP Technical Committee, a group of industry professionals that determines the technical accuracy of all product-related technical standards, conducts scientific research, and reviews safety and health activities of the Association. 

“Beyond being a successful businessman, he has worked on the local, state and national level to advance the APSP technical standards that make a CBP built pool state-of-the art,” said John C. Romano, chairman of the Builders Council at APSP. “Jeff has worked tirelessly to elevate ‘CBP’ as the professional certification that distinguishes a professional pool builder as best-in-class.” 

The APSP CBP designation is earned through a standardized written examination that measures knowledge of residential and commercial pool and spa construction. Applicants for the designation must meet industry experience requirements and, once the designation is earned, ongoing continuing education is required to maintain the certification. 

Past winners of the CBP of the Year Award include Tommy Johnson, CBP, CSP, Johnson Pools & Spas; Lew Akins, CBP, Ocean Quest Pools by Lew Akins; John C. Romano, CBP, CSP, All American Custom Pools & Spas; and Al Rizzo, CBP, CSP, Rizzo Pool & Spa.
