Energy efficiency in the pool and spa industry is a major concern. According to the Harrison Group, a fourth of potential buyers are concerned a pool would be too expensive to maintain; another 17 percent believe a pool uses too much energy and will increase their electric bill.

With this in mind, the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals has created the ANSI/ICC Energy Efficiency Certificate Course. Scheduled to debut at PSP 2013, the EEC is a comprehensive, one-day course designed to help industry pros design, install and pass inspection on consumer-friendly, energy-efficient pools and spas.

To design the course, the APSP looked at the aforementioned Harrison Group research and leveraged it with the ANSI/APSP/ICC-15 2011 Standard for Residential Swimming Pool and Spa Energy Efficiency, which has already been adopted by Florida, as well as other jurisdictions around the country as part of the International Swimming Pool & Spa Code.

“Consumers want pools and spas, but they also want peace of mind that they can affordably maintain them,” says APSP Director of Professional Development Michael Reed. “To be competitive in this slow-growth economy, pool and spa contractors have to meet the demands of the market and completing the ANSI/ICC Energy Efficiency Certificate Course demonstrates that you understand consumers’ concerns and needs.”

The ECC will be held on Monday, Nov. 11 from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Upon completion, attendees will receive a certificate and 8.0 technical credit hours of APSP continuing education.
