Mid-State apprentices receive credentials
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Mid-State Technical College Metering Technician apprentices were recently recognized for earning their journeyworker credential, a culmination of 5,760 hours of on-the-job learning and three years of classroom training. The achievement was marked by a recent graduation banquet at the Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin and Wisconsin Electric Cooperative Association Joint Superintendents’ Conference in Wisconsin Dells.
Mid-State is the only technical college in the state of Wisconsin to offer the Metering Technician apprenticeship, which provides the training needed to install, troubleshoot and service meters. Metering technicians also verify equipment security, investigate power diversions and collect physical evidence of illegal taps.
