The Marin Municipal Water District is offering a self-study Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper (QWEL) exam this Saturday, October 16, allowing landscapers to attain QWEL designation without attending the 12-week QWEL training class. Participants MUST pass the QWEL exam and conduct an irrigation system audit on their own using the QWEL irrigation audit forms. For your convenience we are offering an Assisted Irrigation Audit on Saturday just before the exam. See the exam registration schedule below for details. Once you are registered, study materials and the irrigation audit form will be emailed to you.
QWEL designation has two requirements:
1. Passing a 120 question multiple-choice exam.
2. Completing and passing an irrigation system audit.
The QWEL exam schedule is as follows:
Date: Saturday, October 16, 2010
