About WSIP

 

The Water Smart Irrigation Professional (WSIP) Certification Program provides contractors with the tools and knowledge to promote water-efficient irrigation practices to clients.

Participants learn about new tools and techniques to optimize irrigation systems for optimal performance with minimum water usage. Participating contractors also learn about new smart technology -- computerized systems that deliver water more efficiently and even take rainfall into account.

The WSIP training program features both in-class and field components. Training and access to an auditing software will also make irrigation assessments easier and faster. The result is significant water savings.

Following certification, irrigation contractors will be required to conduct at least five irrigation assessments, using the new methods learned in the program.

The cost of the 2019 certification program is free for those selected.
