manual, breaks, lunches and dinners. Travel, hotel fees and incidentals
are the responsibility of the attendee.

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
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.
