CMAHC Certification Process
What is a CMAHC certification?
Through the Certification program, CMAHC certifies that services or products comply with the relevant or applicable standards and procedures outlined in the latest version of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC), the only all-inclusive model public health code for public aquatic facilities. The certification process includes a thorough product evaluation based on the MAHC content related to the specific product or service. Aquatic services and products must meet or exceed all applicable standards in these areas to earn a CMAHC Certification.
CMAHC Certification is not a one-time occurrence; the intent is to build a long-term quality control partnership. After the initial certification process, CMAHC will re-evaluate a company’s service or product annually to ensure it continues to meet the same high standards required in the MAHC to maintain certification.
What types of aquatic services and products can be CMAHC certified?
- Training programs for lifeguards, lifeguard supervisors, and pool operators
- A wide range of aquatic facility maintenance and operation aids
- Specific products that meet MAHC requirements
