Irrigation Training

When designing an irrigation system there are many different elements to consider: Plant type, location, soil type, water supply and applicable regulations – to name just a few. The ability to incorporate all of these elements into the system design separates the professional irrigation installer from the rest.

Aim of the Course

To ensure the professional landscaper is fully equipped to design, specify and install the most suitable irrigation system for their client’s needs.

Although individual days can be booked, our irrigation course has been designed to run as a three day course, each day building on the previous.

Each day includes a mix of theory and hands-on practical sessions, including designing systems from scratch and assembly of critical components.

The training courses will be held in Milton Keynes. The cost includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day, a folder containing the course notes and additional useful information.

All course attendees will receive a CPD certificate for attendance and those successfully completing the whole course will be issued with the Access Irrigation Certificate of Irrigation Competence.
