The Designer/Manager School is a comprehensive educational program offering a variety of classes designed for both agricultural and landscape irrigation professionals, taught by the very people who developed them – Charles M. Burt (Ph.D., P.E., CID); Stuart Styles (D.Engr., P.E., CID); and Dan Howes (Ph.D., P.E.). The classes are held at the ITRC facilities at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo. Our objective is to offer you an excellent opportunity to receive practical information on key irrigation design and management concepts, increase your competitive edge by learning what is essential versus interesting, work with state-of-the-art management software, gain “hands-on” technical experience with exceptional indoor and outdoor facilities, and experience a comprehensive, intensive course structure that substantially improves technical expertise.
All classes are a full day (8:00 AM – 4:30 PM) unless otherwise noted. Please bring your laptop. Many of the classes have a software component. It will be an advantage for you to bring in your laptop computer to the classes so you can try the software during the training.
