This message is for those irrigation companies that work in CT. Does anyone know what type of licensing is required in the state? If there is would anyone have information on how to obtain the license. I think you have to have had worked for a company for a year in order to sit for the state exam, but I'm not sure.

you have to contact dept of lic and consumer protection...they have to 'approve' you to take the irrigation exam. i was 'approved'...it took 11 months for them to 'approve' me...i still have not taken the exam...lazy, i guess.

the irrigation exam is hard, but not as hard as the certified pesticide applicator's exam. that exam is ORAL!!! good luck.


talk about a trade protecting their trade.

So you had the appropriate 1 year work experience and it still took them that long to approve you for the exam? Or did you substitute class time for this?

i have been pumping in systems for some time now...

not to blow my horn, but i have....

general contractor's licensce in my county
nys certified pesticide applicator
new jersey licensed irrigation contractor
certified irrigation contractor (through IA)
countless re-cert/continuing education credits for irrigation


dude, i was overqualified to take this exam...don't know why they made me wait so long...paperwork, i guess.

i plan to take the exam this year...studying now for the irrigation module of clt...i take that exam in april 17...pray for me.

brian:eek:

the fact that i am cic and nj licensed irrigation contractor, i should be 'grandfathered' in for the ct license...but i will take exam anyway...maybe the state needs the $$$.
