Calais Spas Pools & Billiards believes in education of its staff, referred to as “the team”.
Gary Barber and Murray Renner opened the business early in 1994 knowing that industry education in the building of their team was essential.
“Education is key”, says Barber. “ “In the pool & spa industry, people need to understand the importance of doing business with professionals who have achieved proper industry education, training and the certifications to back it”.
Our levels of industry knowledge, training and certification you will never receive online or from the Big Box stores.
Barber, who is president of the Vancouver Island chapter of the Pool & Hot Tub Council of Canada, also serves on the National board of directors.
Since opening the doors, the top priority at Calais Spas Pools & Billiards has always remained, “to make the greatest contribution possible to the health, safety and welfare of the public in the installation, operation, maintenance and repair of swimming pools, spas and hot tubs”, says Barber.
To achieve this goal early on in 1994, Barber and Renner became members of the N.S.P.I., presently known as the Pool & Hot Tub Council of Canada.
As members of the PHTCC, Calais Spas & Pools is also affiliated with the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP), the National Spa & Pool Foundation (NSPF) and the National Recreation & Park Association (NRPA).
These organizations and associations are the North American industry leaders and providers of premier education, training and certification of the aquatics industry regarding pools, spas & hot tubs.
“As an owner of the business, I’ve always known that to be your best you must invest and embrace the powers of good education” says Barber.
