Services Inc. (QCS) will be conducting the next Meter Technician Training
School in October 2018. This school will be held October 9-11, 2018,
in Knoxville, TN and will be hosted by Tennessee DHIA, DHI Cooperative, Inc.
and National DHIA. This school will provide training in the maintenance,
operation and calibration of all certified portable milk meters. It
is an excellent opportunity for meter technicians, both new and experienced,
to refine their meter care skills and network with other meter technicians.
The meter technician training school provides classroom instruction
and hands-on work with various ICAR/National DHIA-certified milk meters.
We will be using the DHI Cooperative Inc. Portable Meter Center
and will be repairing, servicing, and calibrating meters owned by Tennessee DHIA.
will begin on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. and will finish
Thursday, October 11, 2018, before noon. Times may be adjusted to meet flight/travel schedules of MTTS attendees. A complete
meter school schedule will be available late in mid-July. Registration
