I took my tech to a 2 day Advanced Design and Troubleshooting class put on by Ewing this week in Denver. Most of it I already knew, or knew at one time. I really don't design since we don't install anymore. But it's great to learn or re-learn. I had never learned anything on pumps before, and we barely scratched the surface. And most of this stuff I will forget again. My tech is a wizard with this stuff and I could easily see him as an irrigation architect or something similar. He's extremely smart, and honestly think his position as a tech is boring for him. Ewing is also doing backflow seminar and a few others at our local one. I have taken all these before, multiple times for some of the seminars. But it's always good to keep up on learning, and maybe learn a few new tips, faster ways of doing things, etc. We also took the Water Auditing class this fall, which we really liked. I'd like to see them do a couple seminars on central control and sat. systems. Also some more seminars on the business end of the industry. Like the bidding class by Vander Kooi that Fimco mentioned.
