IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR THE IRRIGATION LICENSURE COURSES
The TCEQ, the regulatory agency that manages the irrigation industry, now requires all attendees who are planning on becoming either a Licensed Irrigator or a Licensed Irrigation technician now needs to be pre-registered and approved by the TCEQ prior to sitting for the respective exam. This is now down electronically via what they call the "E-Application". You can go to the TCEQ website and apply for it there: https://www20.tceq.texas.gov/occlic/.
Before being able to sit for an exam, everyone must be pre-approved (or conditionally approved) to take it. This means applicants will have to pass the mandatory criminal history background check, have completed all necessary training classes, possess the education and experience, etc. and have provided TCEQ all the necessary documentation. Approval (or Conditional Approval) letters will be mailed within 6-8 weeks if no deficiencies exist.
CONDITIONAL APPROVAL -
A conditional approval is an option for only those individuals who are missing only one required course (and have no other deficiencies) and intend to take an exam immediately after completing that required course, at a location where TCEQ is proctoring the exams.
**WMS will issue a "COURSE REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION" for those who are applying for a Conditional Approval.
