On 20th January 2013, Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan, confirmed that work on the installation of water meters will commence in July 2013. Minister Hogan also stated that the nationwide rollout of water meters would create 2,000 jobs as the installation work would be awarded to hundreds of local contractors.
Chevron Training’s Certified Water Meter Installer Training Course will enable learners to acquire the knowledge and skills to competently install all types of water meters and apply for the water meter installer jobs as they become available.
Uniquely, our course is certified by ERS (European Registration Scheme for Competent Personnel). ERS is an Irish Certification Body. ERS has the sole rights for certifying Gas installers in Ireland and is also a certifying body for OFTEC Oil courses in Ireland.
Our trainers are qualified plumbers, all of whom have vast experience in installing both residential and commercial water meters. Our position as market leader is reinforced by the fact that other training providers have sent their lecturers to us for upskilling.
Chevron Training has invested heavily in developing a fleet of purpose built mobile training units to facilitate the delivery of our certified water meter installer training courses. Due to the practical nature of the water meter courses it is essential that this training is provided in an appropriately designed and equipped facility. The nationwide demand for our water meter training programmes illustrated the need for us to provide a facility which could satisfy this demand while also eliminating the substantial indirect costs which are frequently incurred by learners when completing a course such as travel and accommodation.
These mobile training units can deliver the water meter training courses throughout all 26 counties. The practical nature of this course is highlighted by the fact that 70% of contact time is dedicated to hands on training. As the units are equipped with the latest industry technologies they enable our learners to acquire technical competence in all types of water meter installation. Our trainers have been carefully selected by identifying subject matter experts who are defined by their practical experience in the installation of water meters.
Therefore our mobile training units provide learners with the optimum training experience. Our mobile training units are available to deliver training to you nationwide, please call for details.
