The goal of training programs coordinated by the Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) and the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources (IRNR) is helping land, water and wildlife professionals learn how to manage natural resources. TWRI and IRNR work with Texas A&M University, Texas AgriLife Research and Texas AgriLife Extension Service faculty and staff to market and administer training courses on water-related geographic information systems, remote sensing technology, and computer simulation models.
In other training programs, the institutes’ work with Texas AgriLife Research, Texas AgriLife Extension Service, state and federal agencies and various universities to conduct training programs in watershed protection planning.
Registration fees vary among courses and typically include course manual and supporting materials. Computing facilities are supplied at the training sites. Participants can often earn continuing education units (CEUs).
