The great news is the Level 2 Diploma in Smart Metering from COSAC will get you fully qualified within 14 weeks, with no previous gas or electrical experience or qualifications and you don’t need much to get started.

To start with you need:

  • A driving licence
  • GCSE A*-C in English and Maths or equivalent
  • A passion for communicating with people

All our learners attended an interview, aptitude test and orientation before signing up to the course.  We understand this is a big commitment in terms of time and money and we have to make sure that the programme is suitable candidates and that all the criteria to be employable in the industry is met.

The course requires you to take two practical exams, one electrical and one gas.  There are also theory-based exams in both subjects and onsite assessments to ensure that you’re competent.

Our new learners are well on their way now, after completing an induction, including comprehensive health and safety training, they are completing the power content of their course.  Over the coming weeks they’ll undertake their gas training, as well going out with their mentors to gain the practical experience of fitting Smart Meters in people’s homes.

Pop by again soon, and read the interviews with our learners.
