What are Smart Meters and why would I want to train to install them?
Smart Meters are a new type of Gas and Electric meters that will give consumers more information about their energy usage, and also provide automatic meter readings to their supplier. The Government have a set a target of over 50 million meters that will need fitting in 27 million households before 2020, meaning that Energy Providers are going to need a qualified workforce to meet demand. There is a huge opportunity for both existing electricians/gas engineers and those new to the industry.
Which course should I take?
We Offer 3 Different Smart Meter Training Options.
All Smart Meter Training courses are a mixture of centre based practical and theory training, along with a period of mentored onsite real work experience. For more information, please see our brochure on the Level 2 Smart Metering Diplomas
There are no pre-requisite qualifications required, but some candidates with existing gas or electric qualifications may be able to reduce the training durations.
We have placements available which could lead to a permanent position with a national meter installation company through our partnership with Runrec Metering Recruitment, please contact us for details.
