Professional Training Overview
The need to design, maintain and manage water efficient landscapes has never been more critical.
With water supplies stretched nearly to the limit in many regions, conserving water in outdoor landscapes is no longer an option, but rather an essential component of our current and future water conservation strategies.
Although regulatory pressure and rising costs offer some hope to drive changes in outdoor water use, ultimately, the water management practices employed by landscape professionals will play a critical role in reducing outdoor water use. For many, opportunities to participate in comprehensive water management training have not been readily available outside a college classroom.
Recognizing the industry need, Pacific Water Management, an established leader in education and outreach programs, offers a variety of technical water management workshops created specifically for the working landscape professional. The workshop learning experience is intended to provide the attendees with practical hands on information delivered in an interactive format. Each workshop is designed to provide 3.5 hours of instruction and features product samples, demonstrations, group and individual activities. Training programs can be customized to meet the needs of water agencies, professional associations and landscape management staff’s.
Each workshop session has been approved for one hour of continuing education units per hour of instruction by the Irrigation association and PLANET
For those seeking advanced learning opportunities, Pacific Water Management recently expanded its training curriculum and is now offering the Qualified Landscape Water Manager Program, a series of technical water management workshops, created specifically for the working landscape professional.
