Meter School

Meter School features two course options: basic/intermediate and advanced. Each course offers a combination of classroom and hands-on exercises where participants will work at the metering stations with direct instructor oversight and feedback. 

In addition, we offer a pre-conference course covering basic metering. The pre-conference is an ideal introductory course for those with little metering experience or as a "refresher" on basic metering. 

The 2025 Meter School will be held February 4–7, 2025. To learn more about the 2024 program and what you can expect in 2025, click the image of the brochure.
