2022 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. As long as that employee remains with your company, the 16-hour course does not need to be retaken. If that employee leaves your company, you have to have another employee complete the 16-hour training certification.

Each subsequent year following completion of the 16-hour initial training, a 4-hour refresher course must be completed. If you do not complete this 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 2022, the event will take place January 18-19 at the DoubleTree Hilton.  You must register for the InVigorateU event to take the irrigation courses.
