Who we are?


GLEMS balances classroom with hands-on training opportunities that highlight the correct metering methods and provides a safe environment to demonstrate incorrect activities that would result in severe injury. Students will increase their understanding of the risks related to working with high capacity circuits and be able to identify or troubleshoot metering problems.

This is my first time attending it was very organize and lots of hands on workshop
