Meter Reader Training

Make sure your employees get the instruction and hands-on experience they need for on-the-job success as a professional Meter Reader. Developed for both an apprenticeship and skill development program, the print-based curriculum begins with mathematics courses on how to perform essential electrical calculations. Progressing into skill-specific courseware, trainees learn about AC and DC theory, then gain a working knowledge on components, equipment, and electrical power distribution systems.

Customize the curriculum according to the requirements of specific Meter Reader positions in your organization: Electrical Meter Reader, Meter Technician, or Relay and Meter Reader Specialist. And further their career potential with supplemental on-the-job training opportunities. Students who successfully complete the Meter Reader program can :

  • Perform calculations using algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.
  • Understand the principles and components associated with AC and DC electricity.
  • Perform efficiency tests on transformers and AC and DC machines.
  • Select the proper type of test equipment for general electrical/electronic measurement techniques.
  • Explain the functions of common electronic components used in utilities meters.
  • List the types of devices that are part of an assembled switchgear.
  • Describe the functions of the equipment used in power distribution stations.
