Irrigation industry now certified
Voluntary certification programs for those in the irrigation sector have been announced.

The certification programs were developed by the Irrigation Association (IA).

“As more and more people and companies enter the field, a general lack of knowledge of appropriate system design, proper installation and maintenance procedures and an inconsistency in pricing structures threaten the reputation of the industry overall,” says the IA.

Training and certification opportunities will be made available to the industry this winter. A number of those courses will be offered starting this February through Landscape Ontario. To view more information on the program, go to www.horttrades.com/landscape-industry-certified-ia.
