Rain Bird Services Corporation has announced the dates and locations of its 2012-2013 Rain Bird Academy training season. Rain Bird Academy classes provide expert training on installation, maintenance and design of irrigation systems. Because these classes are non-manufacturer-specific, there’s never a product sales pitch or promotion. Additional information and online registration are available here, or call 1-800-498-1942.

In addition to its long list of individual irrigation training courses, Rain Bird Services Corporation will also offer its popular Irrigation Boot Camps at Rain Bird Academy event locations. Boot Camps consist of four days of intensive irrigation training that provide a solid foundation for future business success.

Rain Bird Academy instructors have spent years developing and refining their courses to deliver the highest level of irrigation training available in the market today. Each instructor is knowledgeable about the products offered by most major irrigation manufacturers as well as the latest irrigation techniques.

Attendees of Rain Bird Academy classes are eligible to earn continuing education units (CEUs) from professional organizations such as the Irrigation Association, United States Green Building Council’s LEED Program, PLANET, Landscape Architectural Continuing Educational System, and many state and local organizations.
