We appreciate ALL the Testimonials shared here!

If you have taken classes or attended an event or purchased products or experienced one of our presentations... We would love it if you shared your experience by contacting us to let us know!

We'll share your testimonials here:

After reviewing the books at a neighboring utility I purchased the set at the end of 2012. The books exceeded my expectations. They are well laid out and very high quality.
The drawings are easy to follow, explain the application of each installation, and are color coded for easy tracing.
The pages are water resistant for outdoor use.
The safety notes remind the user that safety is and should be the number one priority.

I will tell you that I went to the Mid-South Electric Metering Association meter school in Sevierville, TN last year (May 2010). Brad did this presentation “Keepers of the Craft” and I’ll say it was GREAT!!!! If you have the opportunity for him to do this presentation, jump on it!! It is very inspiring to hear it from a man that openly shows his passion for meter work. It's almost like he pushes the group to give their best.. For me it was one of the hi-lights of attending MSEMA's school.

We previously had the following 2 testimonials posted on our "Books! Books! Books!" page. Thank you again Mike & Terry for sharing your experiences with the books. We appreciate it!

"The book has opened the door to metering applications and vector diagraming like no training that we have had. It has helped with transformer CT applications for relaying also. It changed my outlook on vectoring tremendously."
- Mike L., Meter Relay Technician IV, Grant County PUD, Ephrata, WA

"We received the books and they are quite more than what we expected - Will be very helpful, especially if we get an apprentice. You are certainly wonderful and knowledgeable people and I thank you for all of your efforts in the craft."
-Terry L., SubTech/Metering, Clallam P.U.D. #1

A Heartfelt "Thank you" to Russ Von Hagen for permitting me to share his kind words from an e-mail I received in Nov (2010):

I wanted to let you know that I feel you are the foremost authority on metering training in the country. This is why I told upper management at the last Metermen's seminar that we had the best teacher in the industry. You have gone on to prove that what I said is true. Your training materials are the best ever produced on the subject. You should take pride in the fact that you have produced some practical books on metering that go far beyond anything out there and are without a doubt the finest representation of our craft to date. I am happy to say you are a friend of mine and I can highly recommend you to any company that wants to substantially upgrade their metering personnel's understanding of the subject. I am very proud to say that I was trained by you as a Journeyman.
Take care my friend,

The Meter Bible is an amazing collection of insight and instruction. This manual was described to me by a meterman as something that he didn't recommend; he said it was a MUST. The information in the manuals is applicable to many departments within the utility industry. Metermen, linemen and engineers can benefit from the well thought out approach. With new engineers needing instruction in metering, the Meter Bible gives details on simplistic through detailed and technical levels. Linemen see the books and are drawn in by the graphics and vector relationships. Meterman apprentices who have access to the Meterman Bible are in a much better situation than the unfortunates who don't have them.

I have had a hard time keeping the books in my office since showing it to a couple of engineers and linemen. Great job.

I had the honor to meet Brad and Michele at the Northwest Electric Meter School when i attended last September. I was suprised to find a meterman with an all around knowlege of metering. It seems as though this craft is becomming specialized in different areas of metering especially at the larger utilities. I was attending this school representing the Mid South Electric Metering Assoc. and thought it would be wonderful to invite Brad to our school as our opening session speaker. He accepted and it was a true blessing to our school. The weekend before school was to start we had a huge flood here in Nashville and some of our instructors from the middle Tennessee utilities could not make it to school in Sevierville Tn. due to roads and bridges being washed away. Brad really stepped up for our school. He volunteered to teach any class we needed him in, and we had to use him in several. For this we at MSEMA are truly greatful to Brad because this year our school could not have been the success it was without him. I wish to thank Brad and Michele for coming all the way to Tennessee and helping us out in our time of need. I feel like we have made some new BEST FRIENDS with Brad and Michele and hope they can attend our future schools. Again THANK YOU VERY MUCH amd we hope to see you again next May in Nashville.

Brad's knowledge of metering is only topped by his commitment to his students. Brad has had a huge impact on the quality of metering work being done in our district. Simply put, he's a great instructor... Thanks for everything my friend.

I had the great blessing to have Brad.....a.k.a. "The Meter God" as my instructor, while in my apprentiship. The man is a wealth of Knowledge, and Experience! I'll not ever forget a question in class comimg up, and Brad's face lighting up. He would announce with some Gusto.... "We can answer that and PROVE our answer to be correct"!!! We'd sit there in Awe, as Brad went to work...... sometimes filling up every Grease Board in the Class Room with equations. I have Fond memories of Brad as my instructor, and wish him well in all he sets out to achieve! As a District Meterman for Pacific Power, I can truly say that myself, and the other Journeyman in the Shop use the skills/training we were taught by Brad on a Daily basis. Thanks Brad

The best advice I ever received during my apprenticeship was Brad's "Always go up to a job with an expectation of what you should see." Thanks!

Brad’s instruction and knowledge of metering has made me succeed as a Journeyman Meterman and also the ability to further teach my apprentice meterman and other metering craft people. I could not have done it without Brad!
