Very interesting. I've been meaning to take the exam for a few years but always get sidetracked.

I had intended this past spring to sit for the exam next week at Cal Poly SLO, but never got around ordering the workbook or the current version of the Turf Irrigation Manual (my copy is a hardcover from the mid 80's)... or applying to take the exam...just forgot about it all...

So it looks like I'll be signing up for an exam at SLO in December...or maybe November in Anaheim..

In fact after reading Eddie's post I went to the IA site and ordered the books about 20 minutes ago...

CIC is a certified irrigation contractor , not a certified irrigation auditor, 2 different certifications.

The IA has 2 , 1 is an IA publication called " the certified irrigation contractor workbook, the other is turf irrigation manuel written by Richard B Choate. One is almost a carbon copy of the other , but they recomend both.

Hey Koster, looks like you probably don't have to take the test...
SECTION 4. Any person who can document 10 years in business as an irrigation contractor as of the date this act becomes effective, can document competency in the practice of irrigation contracting, as determined by the Board, and meets all other requirements and qualifications for licensure may be issued an irrigation contractor's license under Chapter 89G of the General Statutes, as enacted by Section 1 of this act, without the requirement of examination, provided that the person submits an application for licensure to the Board within 180 days of the date this act becomes effective.

Interesting. The classes and test for Golf Irrigation Auditor will be offered at the GIS in February and I'm thinking about footing the extra to go early and take it (2-3 extra motel/food days in the big easy).

For those of you that scoff, (and as deep as it gets from them, I understand) the TX licensing exam is as intense as they make it sound. I've worked green industry from KY/ IN to NE/KS and down into TX in DFW and taking the exam and earning my license in TX was hands down the most intense test I've ever taken. I passed it without difficulty, BUT, even after being commercial pest licensed in all the states mentioned except KS, and a BS in Ag from KSU, that was still above and beyond the hardest test/cert. I've ever taken.
