When he’s not training Class A/B courses around the country, Ben Thomas of UST Training has been busy this year doing live webinars for State and Federal UST inspectors. Webinars have been a simple solution to address the challenges of travel in the time of Covid.
Ben recently provided live webinars for EPA Region 10 (Alaska, Washington, Oregon and Idaho) and EPA Region 3 (Pennsylvania, Maryland, DC, Delaware, West Virginia and Virginia). Some lessons were for beginners and some were for advanced inspectors. For Region 10, Ben invited veteran service tech Don Reeves of Mascott Equipment to offer real-world field tech perspectives. Likewise, Ed Kubinsky of Crompco, a well respected service tech, speaker and PEI RP committee member, spoke to Region 3 inspectors and offered a “boots on the ground” view about the problems and successes of implementing all the new tests.
Feedback from the recent EPA Region 3 class:
I appreciated the multiple perspectives that each presenter brought to the webinar. The experiences from the field are a valuable insight for a person on the regulator side.
Ben and Ed were very knowledgeable, and their experience in this field over the years provided great insight!
I enjoyed the way things were broken down as simple as it was for things that can be so technical.
I liked that you used lots of photos and explained what we were seeing…also the smoothness of the presenters….it wasn’t boring….
Ben is one of the few operator trainers that also trains UST inspectors as well. And he works with regional service technical experts to make sure his audience doesn’t just know the UST rules but is able to get invaluable field perspectives.
