IAL was contracted by the Australian Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities (DSEWPaC) to develop a cost-effective, national, industry-based certification scheme to accredit meter installers, maintainers, and/or inspectors or validators for meters for non-urban water supply.

Applications are $310 for IAL Members and $465 for non members
RENEW YOUR CERTIFICATION
By requiring a regular re-certification process IAL is ensuring that certified personnel remain active in the industry and are keeping their knowledge and skills up-to-date. People who demonstrate this by earning the required CPD points in the required timeframe will maintain their active status. Those failing to earn the required CPD points will be considered non-active.There are two different, though similar, sets of CPD guidelines, one set for Certified Irrigation Designers which are assessed annually and another for all remaining certifications, assessed every two years. IAL will conduct random audits of 5% of all CPD returns each year.
ADD ACTIVITIES TO YOUR CPD
To add points to your CPD in readiness for online renewal, you will need to ADD ACTIVITY via the Member Centre to your certification record. This can be done anytime throughout the renewal period.
These activities will be approved and verified by IAL and upon reaching the minimum of 10 points over 2 years, you will receive an email advising that you have met the criteria for renewal.
To RENEW - you log into the MEMBER centre and go to MANAGE MY MEMBERSHIPS to enable online renewal. You will also receive notification via email that your membership is due to expire.
Reminders will be sent periodically both before and after your renewal date.
We would prefer for all Certifications to be managed online via our new website but if you are experiencing difficulty, please contact the IAL office on 1800 949 891 or email@example.com and we can assist with your renewal or CPD activity.
