Now Easier to Buy More Courses

April 16th, 2015

For our many returning customer’s it’s now super easy to buy more licenses. We’ve added a “Buy More” button to each group account’s admin page which loads the course you need automatically into the shopping cart. This removes a number of “clicks” in the checkout process.

We like feedback from our customers so we can improve the user experience. If you have any ideas to make the whole thing go smoother drop us a line. We’d like to hear from you.

Spotlight: Oregon DEQ

April 1st, 2015

oregon-deq-hillsboroThis month’s Spotlight is on the Oregon DEQ UST Program. Oregon was the first state back in 2003 to require that UST operators be trained to a minimum level of competence. Oregon chose to use state-approved third party trainers and let industry provide the training solutions. I can still remember packing a large group into a conference room at the Lake Oswego Crown Plaza hotel, everyone wondering what the heck we were going to talk about. This was the first state approved class in Oregon and in fact the nation.

12 years later UST Training has personally trained almost the entire state’s operator population and remains a regular trainer in Oregon, offering up to four lives classes per year in Portland and more statewide based on demand.

After working with inspectors and operators for over a decade in this state, I’ve come to really appreciate how things work in Oregon. Here’s what I like in particular.
