I was very impressed with the Irrigation Managers course designed and delivered by Water Strategies for Amuri Irrigation.  The Water Strategies team were very open to designing a course that was tailored to our specific needs and the content was very professionally and clearly presented.  Andrew’s knowledge and experience came through very clearly as he answered the many questions and queries.  I particularly liked the way participants were encouraged to actively engage, rather than just listening, using scenarios to consider various irrigation strategies.  Feedback from those who attended was very positive.”
