Information on the 2017 QCS Meter Technician Training School (MTTS) is now available...

Quality Certification Services Inc. (QCS) will be conducting the next Meter Technician Training School in August, 2017. This school will be held August 15-17, 2017, in Kaukauna, WI and will be hosted by NorthStar Cooperative - DHI Services and National DHIA. This school will provide training in the maintenance, operation and calibration of all approved portable milk meters. It is an excellent opportunity for meter technicians, both new and experienced, to refine their meter care skills and network with other meter technicians. The meter technician training school provides classroom instruction and hands-on work with various ICAR/National DHIA-approved milk meters. We will be using the NorthStar Cooperative Stationary Meter Center for hands-on work..

The school will begin on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, at 12:00 p.m. and will finish Thursday, August 17, 2017, at noon. A complete meter school schedule will be available late in mid-July. Registration is $300 and will include (with the support of our partners) meter technician manual, breaks, lunches and dinners. Travel, hotel fees and incidentals are the responsibility of the attendee.

Registration information is due before August 1, 2017. Class size is limited and is available on a first-come first-served basis.

Make plans to attend a this year's MTTS to retain your certification….

The auditing guidelines require that a meter technician must attend a meter technician training school at least once every five years to retain certification. The QCS website (www.quality-certification.com) has a current list of all certified meter technicians and the last MTTS attended. Please note that attendance is limited to ensure an effective class size.

QCS is committed to provide this educational opportunity for meter technicians each year in a different geographic region of the country. In addition to training and support from QCS and manufacturer representatives, QCS will be focusing on meter center design and upkeep, and effectively managing parts and replacement costs.
