Each student has a 100% guaranteed work placement with one of the many industry recognised utilities companies we work with.
We are the only training centre in the UK with an accredited Managed Learning Programme (MLP) for smart metering.
Once qualified, we guarantee a job interview with a reputable utilities company that is looking for certified smart meter engineers in your area.
The Smart metering dual fuel training programme is a 14 week managed learning programme in which you will train to install single phase electric meters and gas meters up to u6.
The course includes a work placement working with a smart metering engineer who will mentor you whilst you build your portfolio of evidence. This combined with in-centre and on-site assessments gives you the Dual Fuel experience required to work within the industry.
You bring passion and quality to the fore, Utilities Academy is the best example of Smart training I’ve seen.

Our work placement guarantee is one of the most important parts of the course. This period spent building a work portfolio is essential to the qualification and industry experience.
As part of your training course we guarantee that every trainee has a minimum of 15-20 days working alongside a qualified Dual Fuel engineer. Every engineer that mentors a student is given a mentor bonus, to ensure that the student has hands on experience and is not just watching the engineer.
The Utilities Academy training facility has been specifically developed to offer practical Smart Meter training and to challenge the best engineers in the industry.
Using our practical utilities experience we have developed hands-on training to address the needs of future engineers and included the necessary scenario based training facilities. This gives trainees the right skills and know how to overcome the most difficult of situations whilst in the field.
