IA Certification Board accepting applications

April 3, 2014 -  By

Irrigation AssociationThe Irrigation Association (IA) Certification Board is soliciting landscape irrigation experts to fill up to four board openings.

Applications are accepted until July 1, and selected candidates will serve a three-year term beginning after the 2014 Irrigation Show and Education Conference.

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 one during the summer.

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.

To apply, submit a completed nomination packet by July 1 to Sherrie Schulte, IA professional development director, at sherrieschulte@irrigation.org.
