    I think Boces had some last season. I am pretty sure they had like 3 different levels of classes too. I never received the course book this season so I don't know if they still have them.

    You may want to check with your local irrigation companies in your area. My local company puts on a couple classes a year for their customers. In Louisiana, you must now have a licsense to install an irrigation system.
