Class A/B in Hindi Now Available in Texas

Another first in the world of UST Training: We are excited to announce we have launched the nation’s first Class A/B UST Operator Training course narrated in Hindi for our Hindi-speaking Texas UST Operators.

We recognize the landscape of convenience store operators has changed over the past decade and many of our customers come from diverse backgrounds and speak a growing number of languages. So it makes sense to offer our nationally recognized course in a language that is common to the सुविधा की दुकान (convenience store) world.

Check it out!

We’ve teamed up with Javed Surani, President of Your Environmental Specialist in Beaumont Texas, who helped translate the course into Hindi. Javed’s father, Jalaluddin, who is a convenience store operator, provided the voice talent.

Feedback from our first users of our Hindi-narrated Class C course:

“I enjoyed the pictures and videos. Great visuals. The Hindi made it easy for me to understand the training. Learned so much!”
“Detailing and material is nice”
“The Class C Hindi Operator training is amazing! I learned more in the 30 minutes than I have ever learned while working at gas stations for the last 20 years!”

Nebraska 5 Year Class A/B Refresher Due in 2020

IMPORTANT UPDATE: As of October 15, 2020, the revised Nebraska UST rules have not yet been adopted. We are working closely with the State Fire Marshal’s Office and have updated our slides to meet the new rules but we cannot publish the new slides until the rules are final. The moment we know the new rules are finalized, and we have approved from the Fire Marshal, we will make the new course available.

Hello Nebraska Class A/B UST Operators. We wanted to let you a few important things about your 5-year certification.

  1. In 2020, you must renew if you got certified in 2015, which should be many/most of you.
  2. You will automatically get a reminder notice from us.
  3. Nebraska has developed new UST rules to match Federal EPA requirements, which include some new testing and inspecting requirements.
  4. We’ve revised our course to include the new rules and sent to the Nebraska State Fire Marshal for review. But,
  5. The new Nebraska UST rules have not yet been adopted or made official. So,
  6. Once the new rules get adopted, we hope to get our revised Class A/B course approved ASAP before you need to renew so you get trained on the new rules.

Any questions about the Nebraska UST rules or about refresher training, contact us anytime at 866-301-8265 or [email protected].
