Katie Wilke Junkers

(Murfreesboro, TN; January 18, 2020) Ed Cohen has reached a prestigious level of educational and certification qualification within the Pool, Spa, and Landscape Industry. He is now a Society of Watershape Designers® (SWD®) Registered member, having completed 150 hours of education within Genesis University®. SWD Registered members accept and abide by the GENESIS® Code of Conduct and attain 12 hours of GENESIS-approved CEUs every year.

Through its expansive curriculum, developed using guidelines maintained by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), GENESIS® educates, certifies, and connects watershape professionals through coursework, projects, examination, and continuing education.

The Society of Watershape Designers® certification is the only accredited educational program specifically developed for those individuals in the swimming pool, watershapes, or architectural water fields seeking excellence in their field. Although few in number, SWD’s throughout the world are credited with the design and construction of the most conceptually creative, technically advanced, and structurally sound watershape structures that collectively push the boundaries of creative expression using water as their media.

Those who achieve SWD status have acquired skills and knowledge encompassing color theory, the principles of design, multi-dimensional visual communication, the vocabulary of architectural design and history, and the principles of proper pool and watershape construction.
