TRAINING FOR IRRIGATION DEVELOPMENT – GET IT RIGHT FIRST TIME
Irrigation NZ has developed a one-day training course aimed at farmers developing or upgrading irrigation. This course will enable you to identify and specify the right irrigation system for your property. Being an informed purchaser of irrigation equipment and services is key to getting what you need.
The day is a mix of classroom learning and ‘in the paddock’ practical application. Topics include:
What you need to know and how it affects your business. How do the RMA, Plans and Consents fit together?
What information do you need to know and how do you obtain it. Providing your designer with your design brief.
Why are contracts important? An overview of the INZ standard installation contract. What should commissioning involve?
The safety and efficiency of your irrigator and your staff depends on regular maintenance and correct procedures being followed. How you go about developing procedures specific to your farm is explained.
The ‘Irrigation Toolkit’ includes a suite of resource booklets and templates to take home for your reference and further learning: check here.
