Metering Technician Certification Program
Effective Distance-Learning Education
The Metering Technician Certification Program (MTCP) is a distance-learning program offered to electric utilities for certification of metering technicians. The program consists of three modules covering various subjects relevant to understanding safe installation and operation of revenue metering. This program is most commonly used as the curriculum component of apprenticeship-leading-to-journeyman certification, ideal for adoption or endorsement by utility companies and statewide organizations.
Each enrollee must be a power company employee. Enrollees earn Northwest Lineman College certification upon completion. The curriculum can also be used to earn U.S. Department of Labor (or equivalent state agency) certification. See the Power Delivery Programs catalog for more information.
