Northwest Electric Meter School PDT

Program Development Teams (PDTs) are a diverse mix of energy industry professionals responsible for the content creation of programs. Role may involve subject matter expert recruitment, participating in planning meetings and receiving invaluable networking opportunities throughout the entire process. The PDT meets twice a year to review the previous offering and make changes for the upcoming program. PDT members are comprised of metering professionals from our member electric companies and service companies. The November meeting takes place in Portland and includes reviewing the evaluations from the most recent school and addressing any changes to the curriculum and logistics moving forward. The February meeting takes place in Washington and assists in preparation for the upcoming school and addresses any changes that need to be made with regard to instruction and overall student experience.
