Rain Bird Services Corporation is pleased to announce the dates and locations of Rain Bird Academy’s 2010-2011 training season. Irrigation and landscape professionals interested in enhancing their irrigation knowledge and skill sets now have over 86 event locations across the country from which to choose.

Most of the courses are non-manufacturer-specific irrigation training, attracting irrigation professionals interested in improving skills and profitability. The larger Professional Irrigation Training Camp (PITC) events feature a choice of 35 courses over five days, providing landscape irrigation professionals with expert instruction on the latest irrigation products, newest installation methods, best practices in irrigation design, preparation for Irrigation Association tests and cutting-edge business skills.

This year Rain Bird Services Corporation is proud to launch four new classes. Each of these classes emphasizes water efficiency.

  • Introduction to Landscape Irrigation Pumps
  • Rain Bird Smart Controllers and Accessories
  • Topics in Water Efficient Irrigation Design and Scheduling
  • Rainwater Collection and Utilization

As for existing courses, Rain Bird Services Corporation has gone through and updated materials to ensure that the irrigation professionals attending classes have the most current information.

Both the Professional Training Camp and the smaller, Regional Training Camps teach irrigation professionals how to conserve time, money and water through improved irrigation practices. Irrigators will earn a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) from the Irrigation Association for each hour of class attended.

Rain Bird Academy’s Professional and Regional Training Camps have helped thousands of irrigation and landscape contractors expand their skill sets and increase their marketability within the industry.
