UST Training staff attended the first every PEI Virtual Convention and Expo last week. And while nothing beats face-to-face interactions with old friends and new prospects, the show was actually pretty cool. UST Training was excited to make the jump to virtual conventions and we expect to see more over the next year.
Imagine going to a web page that’s a giant digital lobby. You look up and see a navigational banner at the top of the page. You can select “Sessions” to join a live class. Or you can select “Expo Hall” and browse through 60 different virtual vendor booths and live chat with a petroleum expert. Or if you just want to socialize you can stop into one of two “Lounges”, including one for PEI members and even one for Spanish-speaking members.
And yes, it sounds a bit strange and non-personal but in fact there were a number of ways to interact with conference attendees, including one-on-one chat, group, chat, email and of course Zoom.
And UST Training’s Ben Thomas was proud to have participated as a speaker, exhibitor, attendee and Board member.

UST Training is all about partnerships and working relationships in our quest to prevent leaks, spills and fines through motivational training for UST operators. Want to join our team?
Over the years we’ve created alliances with various state UST agencies. For instance, Montana’s Tank Helper, Kentucky’s TOOLS and Maine’s Tank Smart were all done with creative input from our staff. Also, we currently provide training statewide in Arizona for no cost to operators; for reimbursement in Iowa; and have offered subsidized training in the past for West Virginia and Wisconsin through various state grant programs.
Another way we help operators is through state and regional petroleum marketer associations. We have reseller agreements with PMAs in Oregon, Colorado/Wyoming, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and New England. These groups promote our training while either enjoying profit sharing or member discounts. We are also starting a reseller partnership with some select buyers groups in Texas as well.
Here’s a detailed list of our partners.

Attention Class A/B and C UST operators. Important safety tip for cleaning nozzles in the time of COVID-19.
UST Training attended the session “Safety in the World of COVID-19” at the PEI Virtual Conference last week and learned and important thing to share to all UST owners and operators: don’t use bleach to clean your dispenser hanging hardware. It turns out it actively corroded aluminum. The presenter Steve Baynham of Husky showed in real time a video of bleach dissolving the aluminum and we could literally see small slivers of metal blistering away.
