Platform offers training for irrigation professionals of all experience levels.
IrriTech Training Inc., Pocasset, Massachusetts, has announced the national availability of a new online platform that has been created specifically for working professionals in the irrigation and landscape industry. IrriTech members have unlimited access to a broad catalog of courses and manufacturers’ support materials any time on any device.
The wide variety of courses include learning tracks to train a novice or advance an experienced technician’s skills and knowledge; preparation for certifications and state licensure exams; and approved continuing education courses for many national, state and local licenses and certifications. In addition to the IrriTech materials, support materials from a number of different manufacturers are also available.
“The real advantage of this platform for the company member are the metrics in place to track all time spent, courses completed, or support materials accessed to ensure the member learners get the support from their supervisors to put the new skills and knowledge into their job performance,” says Kurt Thompson, director, educational programs and instructor at IrriTech. “This creates a verifiable and positive return on a member company’s training budget.”
