This course was very informative and provided me with an insights into aspects of metering and principles I hadn’t previously appreciated. Very good two days’ education.

The detailed explanation of each meter type and their applications was very useful. Actual meters were available for us to visually inspect. This was useful as I had not seen some of them before.
