I was nervous at the beginning SWEMA meter school, I guess because it was my watch. No need to worry as our SWEMA/TEEX group came together to put on another record setting experience at the SWEMA Meter school. Subject matter experts in every aspect of metering presented and provided valuable information to students. Students of every skill level were excited and talking about their experiences and challenges even after class. I’m excited and already anticipating another great school for 2014….
