Want to host this session? 

For this 1 day session we require a classroom that can accommodate approximately 30 people and has a projector and screen and whiteboard available. The host facility also needs to be within a short distance (preferably walking distance) to an irrigation demo site (preferably a sports field) available to be turned on.

The irrigation site should have readily available:
  • an accessible and view able controller
  • a shut off valve and winterization port
  • accessible valve box or boxes
  • water that can be turned on for testing the system

Here's what people say about this course: 

  • "Great range of material covered"
