    Who in Texas offers statewide classes that are the best not only in helping you pass the state test but also teach you the most when your out on your own?

    Thanks for your time,

    I am looking into adding irrigation to our services. How difficult is the test?

    Test isnt too bad. I had some knowledge of hydraulicsand engineering, but even without that, if you pay attention in class you should do ok. For me the hardest part was memorizing the backflows so that I knew which ones had which options, offered which protections, and where/how they are to be installed.

    The test was not too hard except for the hydraulics section, I had to retest this section and passed the second time.. I trained with multi-services in San Marcos (Jim Pentecost) good instruction. Just pay attention in class and Study...Study....go online and find other irrigation sites to learn extra.. the next step is to find a mentor/irrigator that wont mind you tagging along to learn "real-world" procedures (thanks Scott)

    Water Management Sytems was great for me. I have taken 7 State test and the irrgation test was by far the hardest for me.

    A friend used Sundance and had a great experienc also.
