Benefits of Choosing a Certified Building Professional

The Pool and Hot Tub Alliance sets the international industry standards for swimming pool and spa builders. Their goals include promoting professionalism, championing builder and consumer safety, and encouraging great customer service.

Any reputable pool builder will not only be a member of the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance but will also be a Certified Building Professional (CBP). The CBP certification is a national distinction for pool builders which requires:

  • Five or more years of industry experience to apply
  • The knowledge to pass a 150-question, closed book exam
  • 24 hours of continuing education credits within the last 3 years

With over 75 years of experience, skill, and knowledge, Anthony & Sylvan Pools is proud to be a Certified Building Professional company, so we can ensure the pools we build for our customers are held to the highest quality and most up-to-date standards.

Pool Building Experience

Why does the association require CBP applicants to have at least 5 years of pool building experience?

The CBP certification signifies a company that knows how to build pools and spas, but the company must also demonstrate business competence in areas such as budgeting, profit and loss, and customer relations.

Pools are a long-term investment for homeowners, and it’s important that the pool building company be committed to building high quality pools and spas that will stand the test of time. Truly reputable pool building companies are not in the industry for short-term profits.

At Anthony & Sylvan Pools, we have over 16 CBP-certified members on our team. Our CBP certification is a reflection of our incredible pool building experience as well as our commitment to our products and customers.

Pool Building Experts

Why does the association require CBP applicants to pass a rigorous 150-question, closed book exam?

Pool builders encounter all kinds of real-world scenarios involving pool building specifications, safety concerns, special requests from customers, and more.

True CBP Professionals need to be able to display mastery of the knowledge and skills required for building spas and pools to successfully handle these scenarios. At Anthony & Sylvan Pools, we’re dedicated to building the safest, highest quality pools and spas available while also providing the highest level of customer satisfaction.

Our CPB certification allows us to use our knowledge and skills to do so, and our commitment to professionalism never stops.

We regularly attend continuing education courses to stay current on the latest technological advances, industry developments, and pool building trends. Then, once every three years, we take a recertification exam to prove our expertise.

This is how Anthony & Sylvan Pools remains the most knowledgeable, skilled, and innovative pool building company in North America.


Most importantly, CBP professionals agree to abide by a stringent Code of Ethics. This code ensures that:

  • Your pool or spa will be designed, manufactured, and installed safely and in compliance with all applicable laws.
  • Your pool builder holds all necessary registrations and permits.
  • You will receive a fair, competitive price for your pool or spa.
  • Any concerns that may arise regarding products or services will be addressed appropriately.

Anthony & Sylvan Pools is an honest, ethical company, and our CBP certification is proof that we’re the pool building company you can trust.
