We recently found this classic 1939 photo that was colorized and posted on Facebook so we thought we’d share it. Note the now vintage dispensers and class C operators on the porch!

UST Training recently wrapped up production of two online training courses for Pepsi Bottling Company: one on safely filling Pepsi vehicles and one for inspecting Pepsi USTs. Pepsi has a company-wide policy called the Zero Zone, which mean zero spills, zero accidents, zero environmental incidents. So the company UST standards go well beyond what states typically require. The courses are not Class A/B or Class C training per se but are meant to compliment and expand existing training requirements. Employees can log in and view the courses on the company’s intranet.

UST Training is pleased to announce our Self-Paced Class A/B course in Colorado is now approved and available online. Since 2009, we have offered the course via webinar with the live instructor, Ben Thomas, guiding the class though the material. And we’ve trained a large percentage of Colorado operators that way. The benefit of the webinar for students has been the live interactive feature; the challenge has been carving out the better part of a day to sit through an online class about tanks.
When we wanted to make the jump from live-online to self-paced online, the State of Colorado was concerned that Class A/B operators wouldn’t have the tools to adequately understand what rules applies at each user’s site since every UST system can be different. The compromise was that we at UST Training will be providing a free, after class phone interview so we can help you determine what type of UST system you have and thus know what parts of the training are more relevant to you. The interview is in fact now required. But the phone call is free plus you have the benefit of getting free advice from our senior UST experts. So check it out!
Buy the course here and feel free to contact us with questions about this new training requirement at 866-301-8265 or info@USTtraining.com.

We are very sorry to report that the Petroleum Equipment Institute office in Tulsa Oklahoma was destroyed by fire last night, February 11. Fortunately no one was injured. We’ve been proud PEI members for many years and have been to their office a few times over the years. We send our sincerest well wishes to our PEI friends while they begin recovery actions.
