Maintenance and service technicians make a difference in people’s lives by providing safe, clean aquatic environments for customers to enjoy in residential and commercial spaces. Because this work is essential to the health of our communities, changes in the economy rarely impact pool service jobs. Through an apprenticeship, you can even start earning while you get your feet wet in a service sector job. As you expand your knowledge of water chemistry, filtration and sanitation, you will increase your earning potential and unlock new job opportunities.
Over time, many maintenance and service technicians move into higher management positions. If you are a strong communicator with an entrepreneurial spirit, you could work all the way up to owning or operating your own company! With a job in the service sector, you can steer your career in the direction you choose, taking on new challenges that keep you motivated and excited to work every day.
