IRRIGATION TROUBLE SHOOTING: learn and review electrical terminology for landscape irrigation systems and how to diagnose common electrical problems found in the field. Develop and improve troubleshooting skills in this interactive class. The class will cover trouble shooting irrigation systems, controller issues and solenoids.

EMERGING TECHNOLOGY: Participants will have the opportunity for hands on utilization of tools that assist in troubleshooting. WIFI Irrigation Controllers-we will review the different smart controllers and learn
how to trouble shoot WIFI controllers, allowing technicians to more rapidly and accurately correct issues. Today’s, SMART Controllers need inputs about the site, because scheduling is automatic. These new controllers often rely on sensors and/or user input to function properly. The irrigation scheduling of SMART Controllers depends on proper input based on field conditions; making simple mistakes can cause wide variations in irrigation schedules and make the controller much less effective. We will examine how different types of SMART Controllers work and what are the key inputs each type of controller requires. This class will set you up to get the most from your SMART Controller.

ADVANCED IRRIGATION DESIGN: Improve irrigation efficiency with better design, including uniformity issues, equipment selection, the latest technology, alternative water sources, and scheduling concepts. This class goes beyond the basics in order to address current irrigation concepts and solutions to water conservation issues.
