Classroom Training takes place at an established and approved training centre called ECTA Training in Stockport (near Manchester) for the first 6 weeks.

The following week you will start your field based mentored installations with a fully qualified meter installer and you will be installing meters into real homes and learning the job first hand. You will be required to photograph everything you do and write up a report on every job you work on.

This mentoring period will last for 6 weeks.
