New curriculum focuses on helping landscape and irrigation professionals become more competitive and profitable.

Ewing EducationNovember 1, 2011, Phoenix, Ariz.—Green Industry professionals can learn new skills, get CEUs, and gain business ideas with Ewing’s new classes for 2011-2012.

The new course line-up includes affordable, half-day courses that offer busy contractors a convenient way to build their skills and get trained in new technologies.

Courses will be offered through April at various locations throughout the U.S. Interested professionals can search for courses by state, and register at www.ewingeducationservices.com.
