In April 2014 Utilities Academy and our partners came together to build the first independent smart meter training facility built in the UK. A team was put together to construct a first-class training academy that never compromises on quality.
The result is a world class training facility custom built to serve the needs of the smart meter industry. Our first training facility is near Bradford and we are looking to replicate the facility throughout the UK shortly.
We’re honoured to have our training innovation and commitment to delivering the best training in the industry recognised at the prestigious People in Power awards.
