2023 Irrigation Training for Illinois License Renewal

Illinois law requires every irrigation contractor to have at least one employee on staff that has successfully completed the initial 16-hour certification course. Each subsequent year following completion of the 16-hour initial training, a 4-hour refresher course must be completed.  We have received approval for contractors to take all four of the classes below (both days - January 18-19) if you are in need of the 16-hour training. 

Note: If you do not complete the 4-hour refresher course annually and file the appropriate paperwork with the Illinois Department of Public Health, you are at risk of losing your license and registration to do irrigation work in Illinois.

We provide this training annually at InVigorateU in Bloomington, IL.  In 2023, the event will take place January 17-18 at the DoubleTree Hilton.  You must register for the InVigorateU event to take the irrigation courses.

Registration starts November 1.
