Hi Kevin,

Have you checked out the requirements to get your irrigation license in RI?

http://webserver.rilin.state.ri.us/S...20/5-20-25.HTM

http://www.dlt.ri.gov/profregs/plumbLawsRules.htm

"Any person who has agreed to work a minimum of two thousand (2,000) hours over a period of time of not less than one year under the direct supervision and instruction of a master irrigator or a journeyperson irrigator as an apprentice to learn the irrigation business, and that agreement is approved by the division of professional regulation, shall be registered for an initial period of one year, with renewal on the applicant's birthday, by the director of the department of labor and training and have issued to him or her upon the payment of a fee of twenty dollars ($20.00) a certificate showing that person to be a registered apprentice. Every person who continues to work as an apprentice after the initial one year registration is required to register again as an apprentice and pay the fee."

You may need to work under a master irrigator to be able to apply for a license.

The Irrigation Association supports only state and provincial licensing initiatives that are embraced by the state’s irrigation industry.
