VENTI TRAINING PROGRAM 

 

Our intensive Venti Program (a 20-month training program) provides the participant with an opportunity to gain a full understanding of electricity metering knowledge and its related field skills. The goal is to have fully trained Journeymen with a “know what to expect” mentality who are ready to perform.

This program provides a comprehensive electricity metering training for electrical craft professionals who have already served and completed a full apprenticeship. We built this unique course based upon the instructional training requirements of the IBEW / JATC and Electricity Metering Apprenticeship Programs for Washington, Utah, Oregon, and Colorado.
