Our good friends at Mascott Equipment Company in Portland, Oregon now provide links to our online Class A/B and C UST operator training for UST operators in Oregon, Washington Alaska and Idaho. Check it out!
UST Training and Mascott have worked closely together since 2004, when we offered live Class A/B training in Oregon at the Mascott office in downtown Portland. Of late, Mascott has posted our Tank Savvy Minute videos on YouTube. Also check out the new and improved Mascott web page at www.Mascottec.com

UST Training’s Tank Savvy Minute videos are now on another video sharing web page: Vimeo. We’ve had some feedback over the years that some UST operators don’t have access to our Tank Savvy Minutes because of office restrictions on YouTube. So we decided to publish them on Vimeo as well. Share with your friends and feel free to embed the videos on your own page to train your Class A/B and C UST operators.
Notes from the field…
Making a one-minute training video at a real live gas station sounds easy but there’s plenty that can and usually does go wrong in the field when the camera starts to roll. Our Tank Savvy videos are shot on location to give each clip the “this is totally real” feeling. However, lighting, ambient noise, discovering wrong or broken equipment, busy foot and car traffic, loud c-store customers, and the periodic unexpected surprise all makes for very fluid working conditions.
I’ve had deer walk into the shoot, loud traffic from an unloading ferry whiz by, merry drinkers shouts obscenities, a Harley fire up and take off, dogs bark, and homeless man almost ram me with his laden shopping cart.
Recent we shot a series of Tank Savvy Minutes at a very busy gas station in downtown Portland, Oregon. Andrew Knapp and Loren Swalheim of Franklin Fueling Systems approached me at the PEI show in Chicago and the plot was hatched to shoot a series of videos about the Franklin EVO 550.
The fun part about shooting training video is scripting something that is original, helpful and maybe a little playful. Andrew and Ryan fly out, met me and my Portland friend Nick the cameraman, then we spent about a half hour getting me familiar with the EVO 550. Here’s one video from the shoot. More to come soon.
Our old friends at Mascott Equipment Company in Portland Oregon recently informed us they’d revamped their web page and added links to our Tank Savvy Minute videos. Check it out!
Owner and President Bill Mascott has been a great supporter of Class A/B training and has a long and productive history with the Petroleum Equipment Institute. Thanks Bill for helping get the word out!
