What’s in it for me?

When you retrain as a Smart Meter Installer, you’ll be taking the first step into an expanding industry with lots of future opportunities.

Invest in your future! ECTA have partnerships with some of the best Smart Meter installation companies in the country, and you will meet these employers when you attend one of our Open Days. You will see the centre, get to meet the trainers, and attend an interview with employers actively recruiting for Smart Meter installers in your area. Only once you fully understand the process and accepted by the employer will you be booked on to the course. Salaries and packages differ between employers, with some offering a higher salary, but some offering competitive bonus schemes, however you can expect to be achieving an OTE of between £26k - £40k per annum.

There is also plenty of opportunity for progression – with such a shortage of Dual Fuel engineers in the industry, chances exist for advancement into supervisory or management roles once you have gained some experience. There are also opportunities to upskill into Multiphase or Medium pressure installations.

And after approximately 13 weeks of dedicating yourself, you’ll have the pride in knowing that you have achieved ‘Level 2 Diploma in Smart Metering (Dual Fuel)’ and that you can start your new career.
