THE ASSOCIATION OF AQUATIC PROFESSIONALS (AOAP) GOES LIVE WITH AqP ON WWW.SPLASH-EDU.ORG

JUNE 15, 2020
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The educational partnership between the Association of Aquatic
Professionals (“AOAP”) and the Starfish Center for Aquatic Safety
Research, Education and Leadership (the “Center”), has gone live.

Announced last year, the Center, a non-profit corporation which among
other activities provides an educational platform to the international
aquatic community through Splash-EDU, and AOAP, a non-profit
corporation bringing together professionals from all aspects of aquatics
to network, educate, advocate, enrich and improve the aquatics
industry, have realized their goal as the Center now offers AOAP’s
Aquatic Professional designation (“AqP”) to the industry through its
platform.

AOAP representatives will continue to oversee the development and
expansion of the designation, which recognizes individuals who have
achieved excellence through a combination of education, experience
and certifications. The AqP designation has quickly become not only a
desirable but in some cases required designation for employment.
“We are excited to expand the AqP program and provide a user-friendly
platform for professionals wanting to add the prestigious designation to
their resume,” said Juliene Hefter, Executive Director of AOAP.

Through Splash-EDU, the Center will publish and provide books and
ancillaries, online courses, video, virtual courses and workshops, in-person
training and workshops, certification programs, membership
subscriptions and provide e-commerce opportunities for AOAP
members.
