Licensing for Swimming Pool Builder
Licensing for Pool and Spa Maintenance & Repair
Continuing Education for Providers and License Holders
Note: The Swimming Pool Assembler's license for the installation of “new” above ground pools or spas is not required due to a 2017 legislative change in the Connecticut General Statutes.
As a result of this change Persons and Companies that install “new” above ground pool’s now only need to be registered as a Connecticut Home Improvement Contractor to offer new above ground pool and spa installation to home owners of existing home’s. www.ct.gov/dcp
The maintenance and repair of above ground pools or spas still require the swimming pool and spa maintenance and repair license types of SP-1 and SP-2 for any work performed after the initial installation.
