The Aquatic Facility Management minor prepares students to manage an aquatic facility effectively and efficiently.  As part of the coursework, students will have the opportunity to receive two certifications needed for pool operation.  The certifications students can obtain are Certified Pool Operator and Aquatic Aerobics Instructor.  Students will get hands-on experience working with pool managers and aquatic directors during their internship.  The Aquatic Facility Management Minor requires the completion of all required courses with a letter grade of C- or higher.  Most of the content for the courses is completed on line with skills assessments on weekends or evenings. For more information, contact Valerie Wayda, Chair, Coaching & Teaching Studies at (304) 293-0830 or e-mail at valerie.wayda@mail.wvu.edu or Carol Straight, Advising Center at (304) 293-0839 or email at cstraig@mail.wvu.edu.
