Swimming Pool Servicers
Take science courses such as chemistry and biology to gain understanding of the chemicals used in testing pool water. Shop courses with lessons in electrical wiring and motors will help to develop skills for repairing and servicing machines and equipment. Bookkeeping and accounting courses are also helpful to learn how to keep financial and tax records. You should also learn about spreadsheet and database software programs because you will probably be using computers to maintain files on profits and expenses, customers, equipment, and employees. Finally, serving as an assistant on a swim team can teach you firsthand about the requirements of maintaining a regulation pool.
