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. Classes are designed to provide a basis for understanding metering principles, power and to complement the student's metering skills gained on the job. Sessions offered cover overviews of a power system, basic math, AC and DC theory, meter testing safety and all areas related to single phase meters. The classes are designed to prepare students for the next level of classes relating to polyphase meters.


Polyphase

The polyphase track is designed for the purpose of providing attendees with an overview of the basic information needed to understand polyphase metering. This session covers selection, installation, and maintaining polyphase meters. The session provides training on programming polyphase meters. Students also will receive training in the selection, use, and maintenance of current and voltage transformers.


Advanced

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. Individuals that have previous metering experience or education should attend this session.


Management

The management track provides information about the newest technologies, current industry trends, day to day operational issues, as well as updates on new technology implementation projects. This track is ideal for professionals and managers who want to learn more about the metering industry, where it is headed and current challenges.


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 2 years' experience or meter technicians who work occasionally in substations. Classes cover 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. Classes are also offered to cover 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. Classes cover advanced calibration, maintenance and repair of station equipment as well as troubleshooting techniques of station components. Included are classes on remote communication controls, SCADA, grounding, oil testing, welding, relays, voltage reduction, security protocols, lightning protection, IEEE and OSHA requirements, AMI equipment, infrared, and high frequency testing. Classes are also offered to cover various distribution system operation methods and techniques, and various types of equipment used.


NEW! Emerging/Evolving Technology

To celebrate our 86th year, and to incorporate new trends in our industry, we have updated our logo and our name. Importantly, we have added new topics and products related to electric metering and the electrical grid.
