The training courses are approved by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for continuing education for licensed irrigators, irrigation technicians and irrigation inspectors.
Who: The sessions will be conducted by Charles Swanson, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service irrigation specialist, and Guy Fipps, AgriLife Extension irrigation engineer.
