Ewing Unveils 2008-2009 Education Workshop Schedule

This season’s workshops reveal new strategies to save time, labor and develop new business.

August 25, 2008, Phoenix, Ariz.—Ewing Irrigation Products, Inc., in partnership with Hunter Industries, is pleased to announce its 2008-2009 education workshop series.

Last season, more than 3,000 Green Industry professionals from across the country participated in 94 seminars held in 16 states and 56 cities nationwide.

“Before I attended class, I had no real technical background,” said Reed Ristvedt, owner of Autumn Accents Tree and Landscape and past participant in Ewing’s Advanced Installation, Troubleshooting and Design workshop. “The course truly advanced my technical skills in lighting and irrigation and provided me with a great foundation.”

Most courses combine classroom instruction with hands-on experience to prepare attendees for real-world challenges. Each workshop offers tips to make daily operations more economical, while helping participants discover strategies to grow their business in the face of increased competition.
