Rain Bird Academy Offers Training to Local Irrigation Professionals

No longer considered irrigation “technicians” only, irrigation professionals today are our front-line protectors for our precious water resources. Those in the irrigation system industry must have a wide variety of product and business knowledge in order to work for and run successful irrigation businesses.

Recognizing the expanding roles of those involved in specifying, designing and installing today’s complex irrigation systems, Rain Bird Academy invites irrigation professionals to its Professional Improvement Training Camp Jan. 23-27, 2006, at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, located at 2831 Boardwalk at Brighton in Atlantic City, N.J. Those who would benefit from this training include irrigation contractors, system designers, distributors, technicians, landscape architects and irrigation managers from public agencies.

Courses taught by irrigation industry certified trainers offer detailed instruction on financial management, product knowledge, various field installation techniques and troubleshooting irrigation systems. Select courses will also be available for Spanish-speaking professionals. Those interested in attending this professional irrigation training can contact Robert Pfeil or Mea Newman at 1-800-498-1942 or visit www.rainbird.com/training to register.

Rain Bird has designed its classes to be informative for everyone in the irrigation profession – from those just starting out in the irrigation field to seasoned professionals. Rain Bird training classes are broken out depending on participants’ experience and include four main sections:

  • Business Skills Training – Rain Bird provides informative, insightful information for those irrigation professionals and business owners wanting to learn more about financial management, profitable job estimating and customer selling skills.
  • Central Control Training – Participants can learn more about the technology, hardware and benefits that comprise today’s central controller systems. Participants can also learn about central control maintenance and troubleshooting.
  • Golf Irrigation Training – From pump stations to hydraulic fundamentals, participants will gain an in-depth education in installing irrigation products and technologies onto their golf courses.
  • Turf Irrigation Training – Much like the Golf Irrigation Training, Turf Irrigation Training will teach participants about irrigation design, products and product troubleshooting as well as intelligent water management.

Irrigation professionals can choose from one to four days of training with instructors who conduct one of the most respected and comprehensive training experiences in the irrigation industry. Specific “education tracks” on drip products and design, irrigation design, contractor business skills, and irrigation contractor courses are also available. The education participants receive will help them to better understand their irrigation products, work more efficiently and run more profitable businesses, which will reap financial rewards in cost savings and better financial management.
