Organizer

ITTS - Certified Irrigation Repair Technician

In 2001 Richard Daigle had a dream and a goal to start an educational program to teach basic irrigation concepts to all service providers and technicians in the field. Irrigator Technical Training School was established with a Basic Certification course that taught beginning irrigation courses with elementary techniques and practices. These Basic classes provide a very “hands on” approach. This has since grown to offering a full range and scope of classes. Irrigator Tech offers classes with certification in areas that include Back Flow, Irrigation Auditor, Irrigation Repair, Irrigation Installer, and Pond Technician. These classes are offered to cities, schools, government agencies, business owners, property managers, municipalities, and maintenance companies. His mission is to assist all “irrigators” in achieving their goals with a better understanding and knowledge of the industry and raise their individual level of performance.

Richard Daigle has served on the board of the CLCA (California Landscape Contractors Association) since 2005 as the Education Director and from 2008-2011/12 as President of the Inland Empire Chapter.

He founded the Green Industry Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Association of Latino Landscape Professionals in 2010. He is currently on the Board of Directors for both the Hall of Fame and the Association of Latino Landscape Professionals.
