Swimming Pool

Welcome… I’ve been teaching student to Pass their Swimming Pool Exam the first time for 20 years. I recently updated the course so you get the most current information for the Florida Construction Exam.

I’m an instructor for the Contractors Institute here in Florida. I’ve developed the swimming pool course and our students are passing their exam the first time.  With the internet I can now train you to pass your exam without ever leaving you home. We have Webinars and Online Highlighting of your books, both for technical and business and finance. We still offer the classroom instruction that is included in the price of the course.
