We say it a lot. We will never teach a CEU class to Texas Licensed Irrigators or Irrigation Technicians on a subject you had to know in order to pass your licensing exam in the first place.
As I’m writing this, I got a call from Paul Reed, a graduate of one of our classes. He was asking about the progress of an advanced course in CAD (computer aided design). I was working on the course outline when he called and asked if he would be interested in taking the class before it was submitted to the TCEQ. “Yes. I mean I like CEU credits because the thought of sitting through another hydraulics class makes me want to put a gun to my head. Buy, yes, if you have something before it’s approved, I’ll take it because I need it.”
That pretty much defines the way we look at relevance. If you, someone who is looking for irrigation training in general and Texas CEU credits specifically, need to increase compitence in a certain area, we want to teach it.
So, we are different in that we don’t teach what you already know.
That’s right. You make a huge difference in our classes.
We realize that you could teach classes on irrigation and do an excellent job of it. I am going to do everything I can to get you to talk.
It’s engaging, you stay tuned in and it informs the rest of the class. We mean it when we say we need you.
Invest your CEU time in a class that you are genuinely interested in. We hope it’s CAD, Business Skills, Identity Crisis or Repair. But pick something new, something needed but unexplored. Come away with something useful. Don’t waste your CEU time. Don’t saw sawdust.
