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!”

USTs by the Numbers Nationwide

We like to think of ourselves as “big picture” people in the world of UST compliance through savvy education. Because we offer training coast to coast (literally, and beyond –from Guam to the US Virgin Islands) we like to look at national UST trends.

As a Class A/B UST Operator, you might want to know where you stand when compared to the rest of the nation.

Here’s a summary from EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks Performance Measurements dated 9/30/2020 and covers the previous year. For the full report today and previous times, click here.
