Engagement with Watershape University

Watershape University (WU) pursues relationships with several businesses to further our mission to bring quality education to students of all levels in the pool, spa and aquatics industry. Corporate Engagement provides a mechanism for businesses to team up with WU, IWI, faculty and students through one of four levels of engagement described below.

As a team we create winning solutions where manufacturers, buying groups, distributors and tradeshows are closely engaged with our faculty and students. Our credential system does not allow for a “membership” option where a consumer-facing business can advertise that they are somehow better for being part of an association. Instead, our credential program requires that both individuals and consumer-facing businesses must earn those credentials by attending classes at tradeshows and engaging with our team of manufacturers and other stakeholders. In other words, improvements to your business status requires mandatory interaction with WU, our campus hosts, and Corporate Engagement team of manufacturers, distributors, buying groups, and other entities.

Engagement Benefits to Businesses

Your business can benefit from a relationship with Watershape University through increased visibility, trusted endorsements, joint development of programs, on-site training (your facility as a campus of WU), and other opportunities. Our students need education to include your products and services and there is no better way to do that than through our faculty working in concert with your internal team of experts to deliver the very best training.

Engagement Benefits to Students

Students interested in teaming up with our Corporate Engagement businesses should reach out to one of our faculty members for a direct introduction to key team members. Looking to try a new product or manufacturer? Can’t solve a challenge with your local resources? Let us know how we can help you, our valued student body and team.

Core Class Refresh

Would you like free access to our core online classes, including our 3-day Essential Pool Construction, 2-day Essential Fluid Engineering Workshop (with the latest worksheets!), Color Theory, Principles of Design, and others?

Watershape University provides free access to individuals that have already completed equivalent courses with other institutions. We recognize that our students often want to refresh their knowledge in specific subjects but it doesn’t make sense to repeat a paid class when there are so many other new opportunities to expand knowledge through advanced classes, our webinars, our magazine, etc.

Our Core Class Refresh program is available to authorized employees of Certified Watershape Companies (CWC). To get authorized, simply upload your complete transcript(s) from other institutions so that we can verify which courses you are eligible for. You may upload transcripts through the Portal. Please contact Charlie with any questions.
