Books & Classes for your Contractor's License

Charlotte County | Pool Maintenance & Repair License (GITS©)

“Swimming pool/spa servicing contractor” means a contractor whose scope of work involves, but is not limited to, the repair and servicing of any swimming pool, or hot tub or spa, whether public or private, or otherwise, regardless of use. The scope of work includes the repair or replacement of existing equipment, any cleaning or equipment sanitizing which requires at least a partial disassembling, excluding filter changes, and the installation of new pool/spa equipment, interior refinishing, the reinstallation or addition of pool heaters, the repair or replacement of all perimeter piping and filter piping, the repair of equipment rooms or housing for pool/spa equipment, and the substantial or complete draining of a swimming pool, or hot tub or spa, for the purpose of any repair or renovation. The scope of such work does not include direct connections to a sanitary sewer system or to potable water lines. The installation, construction, modification, substantial or complete disassembly, or replacement of equipment permanently attached to and associated with the pool or spa requires licensure; however, the usage of such equipment for the purposes of water treatment or cleaning shall not require licensure unless the usage involves construction, modification, substantial or complete disassembly, or replacement of such equipment. Water treatment that does not require such equipment does not require a license. In addition, a license shall not be required for the cleaning of the pool or spa in any way that does not affect the structural integrity of the pool or spa or its associated equipment. As regulated under Florida Statute, a person who has passed a competency examination as a Pool Maintenance and Repair Contractor may perform these or related tasks or may supervise persons in his employ in the execution of these tasks.

Pool Maintenance & Repair License Courses

  • Charlotte County (Florida) Pool Maintenance and Repair Contractor (GITS) Course

    Course Description: Upon registration students obtain class material and a detailed introduction to the study program (same day you register!). Once the introduction has been completed, students receive access to class lectures which can be watched at any time; these lectures teach students how to solve typical exam questions. The student is also instructed on how to perform a series of exercises to develop an understanding of the distribution of information within the reference books. Tabbing of the books is conducted to help students find information faster within the books. Students are provided with hundreds of practice questions very similar to the ones found on the actual exams. As the students go through the program they have immediate access to professors who can assist them with any questions they might have; these professors are standing by morning, afternoon, and evening to answer any academic questions the students might have.

    The courses are carefully structured so that each student can go through the material at his/her own pace, based on his/her unique schedule limitations, and study skills. Students remain in the program for as long as they need to, until all the exams required for licensure have been passed. The students also have access to in-person classroom-style refresher courses which are held all day Saturday and Sunday throughout the state at no extra charge to the student and without limitations. These refresher classes are not mandatory and the training can be completed successfully without attending them.
