"First off I will state that it exceeded my expectations.  I found the subject matter hit what I was after in the school; everything from mechanical meters to solid state meters.  The variety of instructors (vendor and utility representation) enhanced the experience as each one gave real life examples in regard to the material they were presenting.  There seemed to be ample time to cover each subject and I was amazed at how things stayed on track, kudos!!"  - Eric Lambert
