ECNE's Fall Meter School will offer Track 3 - Advanced Metering.  NOTE:  Track 2 - Smart Metering is not a prerequisite for the Advanced Meter Training.

Students may elect to attend Friday’s conference sessions for an additional fee.


This track enhances the experience of your most technical employees, exposing them to the more complicated side of metering, with an eye towards what the future of the industry holds.  The sessions will  also benefit managers, engineers and other supporting metering field personnel.


Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of complicated metering topics and the intricacies that arise with more advanced metering installations.  Come away with more knowledge of advanced metering and a solid background on new metering technologies.
