Building Inspector (Pool Safety) 

A person registered in the class of Building Inspector (Pool safety) is responsible for carrying out all the functions of a swimming pool and spa inspector under the Building Act 1993 and Part 9A of the Building Regulations 2018, including:

  • issuing certificates of pool and spa barrier compliance;
  • issuing certificates of pool and spa barrier non-compliance;
  • lodging certificates of pool and spa barrier non-compliance with the relevant council.

The Pool & Spa Safety Inspector Course is delivered over 5 days, across a 10 week period, 1 day per fortnight. Participants must attend each session and successfully complete course work and assessment tasks.

 

Assessment

Participants must demonstrate knowledge and competence by undertaking pool and spa inspections. These inspections will be carried out at various venues.

The cost of the course includes supporting completion of 15 inspections under the supervision of a VBA accredited inspector (the Trainer).
