CalWEP to Launch Bay Area QWEL
Training Program

CalWEP will host several Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper (QWEL) class series throughout the greater Bay Area beginning fall 2019.  QWEL is a WaterSense professional certification program that provides water conservation professionals and the landscape workforce with a thorough understanding of sustainable landscaping and efficient irrigation principles and practices. 

This first-of-its-kind regional training program is sponsored by ten Bay Area water providers and will be taught using the newly updated QWEL curriculum in both English and Spanish.

If you’d like to receive updates regarding the Bay Area QWEL training program, or are a water conservation or landscape professional interested in earning QWEL certification for yourself or staff, sign up for our QWEL Mailing List today.
