CPO Certification Course

Wednesday

August 16

8 am - 6 pm

The CPO training course is one of the most respected certifications in the pool and spa industry. Commercial pools are often required to have CPO certified staff members on hand. The course is an excellent primer of pool/spa sanitation, equipment, and operation. While the course itself is not built to be oriented toward float tanks, this class will be taught by Dr. Roy Vore, who you may have seen speak at previous Float Conference. Dr. Vore will help put the information in the context of a float center.

Conference Sessions

This year's Float Conference will be another hybrid event - join us in Louisville or online!

In Louisville: 

Speakers will fly in from all over the world to share their expertise about float research, sanitation, tank maintenance, small business operations, float center marketing, and so much more. Presenters will facilitate hands-on workshops covering topics like marketing and business needs. And you can finally take some time for self care with our wellness sessions, like qi gong, light therapy, and didgeridoo. Conference sponsors will have booths, highlighting the latest products and services they offer for the float industry. We'll have incredible networking experiences, including intimate group discussions, lunches and breaks, and epic parties! Plus, there may or may not be an award for the most hugs given. 

Virtually: 

We want to make sure that anyone unable to travel this August is still able to gain valuable knowledge from the Float Conference! Our simplified virtual experience will include a livestream of the main stage, a chance to learn about the sponsors, and ability to chat with fellow attendees. And don't worry - virtual attendees will still be able to party!
