Should Take This Course
The Smart Controllers course is essential for anyone responsible
for designing or managing irrigation systems on urban landscapes
such as residential lawns, sports fields, parks, commercial
properties and golf courses. The course will also benefit
municipalities and city water utility personnel, particularly those
interested in developing urban water conservation programs.
This course will provide instruction on weather and sensor
based irrigation controllers as well as irrigation scheduling
concepts. Students will learn how ET based controllers
produce an irrigation schedule using different technologies.
Students will have “hands-on” instruction on controller
operation and set-up. The class will also cover smart
controller bench testing protocols and related issues.
Students should bring a calculator and materials for taking notes.
While not necessary, students are welcome to bring lap top
computers for use in this class
