Meter Technician (Level 1)
The session introduces the apprentice to the metering field with practical hands-on sessions combined with theoretical material.
Level 1 will cover the following topics:
Single phase watt hour meter operation
Three phase system characteristics (Delta system)
Standard metering applications and installations on Delta
Billing procedures, principles of demand, installation of self-contained and transformer type meters
Theft of power – Residential
Basic transformer theory
Theory Qualifying Test covering the following: atomic structure, basic electrical quantities and their relations, series and parallel circuits, series - parallel circuits, magnetism and electromagnetism, sine wave generation and components, semiconductor diodes, electrical meters, inductance, inductive reactance, impedance, capacitance, capacitive reactance RCL series circuit solving and phasors, RCL parallel circuit solving with phasors, transformers, basic three-phase theory.
The Theory Qualifying Test is designed to confirm the apprentice is competent to successfully complete the theory portion of Level 1. Some exemptions are accepted. Please call for clarification.
The Metering Technician Log Book will be provided with the Orientation training manual.
