To celebrate our new course release, we're running a sale on all courses through June 21, 2017! Enroll now and get some new skills before Summer is upon us.
This course is for the beginner or entry level technician. We cover the fundamental concepts of volts, amps, & ohms and how to measure these at the irrigation timer. You'll learn a 4 step process to program any timer, clock, or controller, whether AC or DC. Then we'll get specific about timers, covering all the features you need to program, troubleshoot, or maximize a system's efficiency. As always, I've given you several real-world skills that you can put into practice today; selecting and programming the right timer, properly splicing irrigation wiring, using a multi-meter to troubleshoot an irrigation timer, and how to use a wire doubler.
