ECTA launch new Bromsgrove Smart Meter training facility


If you're considering a new career in the Smart Meter industry, we can now help you more easily, whether you're from the North or the South of England.


Our new site is now open for Smart Metering courses in Bromsgrove!
Stockport-based ECTA is now offering Smart Metering courses from a new location, to meet demand for new installers. The new premises are located In Bromsgrove, West Midlands, off the A38 onto Buntsford Park Road. This will make us more accessible to businesses based further South, and as always we can assist you with accommodation if that should be your need.

The government has set a target for 50 million Smart gas and electric meters to be installed in over 27 million homes, meaning energy providers will require many more Smart Meter installers to assist with demand. This an amazing opportunity for you to start a new career in the Gas & Electrical Industries, and with our links to industry providers, an easy transition into a new working environment.
