Swimming Pool Safety Inspections Course

Swimming Pool Safety Inspections Course

Swimming Pool Inspector training course is intended to provide students with a range of knowledge skills and competencies to perform the role of a Swimming Pool Safety Inspector. This course will also provide part of evidence required to apply for pool safety inspector licence in your state.

Pool safety inspectors have an essential role to play in ensuring that pools and spas are compliant. Pool owners need a pool safety certificate when a property is sold or leased. 

Pool Safety Inspector’s Role

Swimming pool safety inspections are essential for ensuring pool safety, especially for children. A pool safety inspector’s role is to inspect pools to determine whether they comply with the standard. If the pool is compliant, the inspector will issue a pool safety certificate. If the pool doesn’t meet the standard, a nonconformity notice may be issued. 

Our Course in pool fence inspection Victoria is the first step towards becoming a licensed pool safety inspector. The course covers the legislation, standards, and code applicable to the performance of pool safety inspection functions and gives you the skills and knowledge to inspect pools and spas to determine its safety compliance. 

After completing the course with Pool Safety Barrier Training, you can apply to become a licensed pool safety inspector to provide pool safety inspection services to determine if swimming pool and/or spa barriers are compliant.

How to become a pool safety inspector will depend on your location. In Queensland, the 0660NAT Course in Swimming Pool Safety Inspections is required to become a pool safety inspector in Queensland. The course covers pool safety laws and pool fencing safety standards in Queensland and is approved by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC). 


After successfully completing the course, you can apply to become a licensed pool barrier safety inspector. With this qualification, you can apply to be recognised by the New South Wales Building Professionals Board to enable you to complete barrier safety inspections of regulated pools and spas in New South Wales. We deliver this training course in Brisbane.


The Pool Safety Inspectors Course (VBAISP2020) is required in Victoria to be registered in the class of Building Inspector (Pool Safety) and carry out the functions of a pool and spa inspector under the Building Act 1993 and Part 9A of the Building Regulations 2018. In addition, you need to conduct 10 live swimming pool and spa barrier inspections as part of the assessment before you can apply to the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) to get a pool safety inspector licence.

The course duration is three days. In Queensland, you can apply to become a licensed pool safety inspector after completing the course and passing the pool safety inspector test. According to the QBCC website, it can take six to eight weeks to process a licence application.

If you are already a building inspector, being licensed can expand the services you can deliver. If you are considering starting a pool and spa barrier safety inspection business, the licence is required, and the course is the first step for attaining the licence to inspect pools and spas for barrier safety compliance.
