    Hello,

    I have a good size lawn care business, and in a few years I would like to be able to do irrigation work. About how long does it take to get certified in irrigation installation and management. Any info would be great. Thank you for your time.

    It takes about 8 weeks total and 625.00. I'm in Plano and took the class from Ben Fisher his website is www.irrigationeducation.com. The class is 450.00 and the Texas test is 175.00. I highly recomend him, he teaches it in Plano and Irving. The test is a four part test and I made a 94, 94, 96 and 90. I did do a lot of studying. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions at planoirrigation@aol.com
