Technology has revolutionized the way irrigation systems are designed, installed and maintained over the past 10 years. Water conservation and water quality are at the forefront of discussions and governmental regulations. As a result, irrigation contractors have adopted their work quickly and effectively to use new tools and technology to help conserve water resources and protect water quality.
While technological advancements have brought about changes in the mechanics and quality of irrigation system components – they are more durable, precise and efficient than ever before – there are other things that remain unchanged. First, those unchanging principles dealing with the nature of water, and second, how to design, install and maintain irrigation systems effectively. In this course, you will learn the irrigation concepts, planning, water management, major components of an irrigation system, as well as general maintenance, safety and troubleshooting procedures.
