The Purdue Turfgrass Program created Diagnostic Training Events in 2011 to provide turf industry professionals the opportunity to learn in a hands-on, demonstration fashion. Participants will learn concepts through presentations in the classroom and in the field during demonstrations of various technologies/products. These demonstrations are set up exclusively for these events and are selected with input from industry professionals. You can expect education focused on lawns for lawn care technicians, relevant and up-to-date info for lawn care technicians, and hands-on, as well as demonstration-based, training. This is truly a unique opportunity and event!
