“On completion the intern will have attained skills in installation of water meters, water pipe laying, use of manual tools e.g. jack hammer, abrasive wheels, etc., and use of computerised mapping equipment. The intern will also have gained insight in the areas of signing, lighting and guarding of work areas and locating of under ground services.”
Last February, Environment Minister Phil Hogan announced that 1,600 jobs will be created installing more than one million meters over three years, starting in July – with 25% of all jobs, or 400, going to people ‘in need of work’.
Meanwhile, ‘non craftspeople’ have paid more that €600 on two-day training courses to install the meters.
