Rain Bird Irrigation Training

Rain Bird Services Corp. has set its 2011-2012 Rain Bird Academy training season with more than 70 classes and workshops across the country.

Irrigation and green industry professionals interested in enhancing their irrigation skills and knowledge can choose from a selection of Rain Bird Academy training events including general irrigation, new to irrigation, golf and central control classes. Attendees will learn best practices to help them save time, money and water.

Workshop attendees may also earn continuing education units (CEUs) from professional organizations such as the Irrigation Association (IA), the United States Green Building Council’s LEED program, PLANET, the Landscape Architectural Continuing Educational System and many other state and local organizations.

“Rain Bird Academy strives to provide the best irrigation education and professional development opportunities,” said Robert Pfeil, manager of training services for Rain Bird Services Corporation.

"Our general irrigation classes are non-manufacturer-specific, meaning we do not promote or sell Rain Bird products in class; we make sure our attendees get a comprehensive look at all of the latest irrigation products and techniques from across the industry. Our emphasis is on developing top-notch irrigation professionals.”
