Rain Bird Training Services will play host to more than 70 irrigation training events nationwide from now through May 2017. Classes are open to irrigation professionals at all experience levels, including contractors, distributors, golf course superintendents, designers and architects.
All Rain Bird training classes count toward continuing education units (CEUs) from the Irrigation Association.
“Quality irrigation training has never been as important as it is today,” said Paul Lierheimer, director of Rain Bird’s Contractor Division. “As the world faces ongoing water issues, irrigation professionals must have the knowledge to help homeowners, businesses, sports fields, parks and golf courses enjoy healthy, beautiful turf with less water. Our training curriculum gives them the information they need to do just that.”
Rain Bird Training Services offers three different ways for irrigation professionals to enhance their skills and become better water managers:
- Rain Bird Factory Trained Classes provide comprehensive training on Rain Bird products. The company will host 33 of these classes during the October-to-May training season, with one class on golf course irrigation and the others focusing on managing landscape irrigation with Maxicom or IQ Series central control systems.
- Rain Bird Academy Classes provide general irrigation skills training on products from various manufacturers. This training track includes Rain Bird’s popular Boot Camp classes, which are endorsed as “IA Select” courses by the Irrigation Association. Rain Bird’s Irrigation Boot Camp provides attendees with the basics of irrigation in just one week, making it ideal for individuals who are new to the profession. This training season will also feature an important new course in the Boot Camp series, “Irrigation Bidding & Estimating.”
- Rain Bird Customized Training is designed for medium and large irrigation contractors, public agencies and irrigation distributors. Rain Bird’s instructors travel to your location and provide training on only the products you use.
