Seven Tracks

You'll benefit from comprehensive coverage of these and other critical topics in the Seven Tracks:

Single Phase

The single phase track is designed for the entry-level person. You will gain a basis for understanding metering principles and power and complement your metering skills gained on the job. Sessions offered cover overviews of a power system, basic math, AC/DC theory and meter testing safety.


The polyphase track is designed to provide you with an overview of basic information needed to understand polyphase metering. You will learn about selection, installation, and maintenance of polyphase meters, and provides training on programming polyphase meters. You also will receive training in the selection, use, and maintenance of current and voltage transformers.

Advanced Metering / Engineering

The advanced track includes topics on complex metering theory and concepts, high-end metering applications, power quality, remote metering communication methods, and other advanced metering applications, tools, and equipment. It will also include topics on meter engineering and grid design.


In the management track you will learn information about the newest technologies, current industry trends, day-to-day operational issues, and updates on new technology implementation projects. This track is ideal for professionals and managers.

Basic Substation & Distribution Principles

This track is designed to provide entry-level knowledge of substations and distribution systems. It is ideal for substation personnel with less than two years' experience or meter technicians who work occasionally in substations. You will learn the fundamentals of substation construction, proper grounding, electrical layout, and the purpose for typical equipment in a substation. Examples include: safety, station power transformers, batteries, circuit breakers, capacitors, switches, voltage regulators, basic communications, metering, and other miscellaneous components found in most substations. You will also learn about distribution system operation and the various types of equipment used.

Advanced Substation & Distribution Concepts

This track is geared towards experienced substation and meter technicians as well as supervisors and managers who maintain, repair, and/or oversee the daily operation of substations. You will learn advanced calibration, maintenance and repair of station equipment, and troubleshooting techniques of station components. You will also learn about remote communication controls, SCADA, grounding, oil testing, welding, relays, voltage reduction, security protocols, lightning protection, IEEE and OSHA requirements.
