IA Certification Board seeks volunteers

Industry News

Landscape irrigation experts can submit applications through July 1.

| May 1, 2014

The Irrigation Association Certification Board is soliciting volunteers to fill up to four board openings for landscape irrigation experts. The 13-member board establishes policies and processes for IA’s Select Certified program, develops new certifications, updates exams, monitors grading procedures and maintains standards for the certification process.

Board members participate in monthly conference calls, committee work throughout the year, and two three-day, face-to-face meetings: one at the Irrigation Show and Education Conference and one during the summer. Selected candidates will serve a three-year term beginning immediately after the 2014 Irrigation Show.

Applicants must be IA members and certified irrigation designers in good standing, with one or more specialties. At least one incoming board member will be required to hold a certified irrigation technician designation. All members of the certification board must sign a confidentiality statement and must not be involved in developing or teaching classes to prepare candidates for IA certification exams.

For more information on the certification board, click here. To apply, submit a completed nomination packet by July 1 to IA Professional Development Director Sherrie Schulte, CAE, CLIA.
