The CIK class was very informative, a few days of training and a lifetime to apply what was presented!
The College of Irrigation Knowledge was one of the best courses I have been through. Chris is a very knowledgeable instructor and was able to make a week’s worth of learning irrigation fun. The information I learned was immediately applicable in the field and has helped expand our business. Totally worth the investment to go and learn. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about irrigation.
As a CIK graduate, I was pleased to be able to send my son as a second generation graduate of this program.
I highly recommend to any landscape professional to attend the College of Irrigation Knowledge. CIK is a well taught course that will refresh, reiterate, and broaden your understanding of irrigation knowledge overall. Chris Pine is a great instructor. He makes the course information easy to comprehend, incorporate, and applicable to the various jobs of his students. You will graduate the course with more confidence in your skills and knowledge of irrigation.
