SMETS 2 Training

We can up-skill your entire workforce to install SMETS 2 technology.

Currently, SMETS 1 Smart Meters are fitted across the U.K, the Smart functionality of SMETS 1 meters will only work with the energy provider who has fitted the meter, so if a customer has a SMETS 1 meter and decide to change provider, they lose any smart functionality e.g meter readings being sent automatically to the supplier, It has been mandated that this year SMETS 2 meters and communications must start being fitted in customers homes, this allows customers to move suppliers and not lose any smart features or have to have their meter changed again.

Utilities Academy is now offering SMETS 2 training for all areas across the U.K, you can upskill your field workforce with us, allowing your engineers to fit the new mandated technology.
