We are pioneers in UST training. Hence the name. We were the first in the nation to train Class A/B operators with state approved content on June 25, 2003, in Portland Oregon. Since then we’ve been the first to train in Montana, Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, US Virgin Islands, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Puerto Rico (in Spanish), Guam and CNMI.
Our goal is to make you a better operator. Anyone can make a training course to meet certain standards but our goal is to go beyond compliance and always look for ways to make you a better operator. In all our courses we offer you hints, tips and practical advise at no extra cost.
We treat each customer as unique. Our customers come from all walks of life and have every type of UST system imaginable. We know everyone has a different situation and we strive to give each operator a personalized experience, whether you buy from us or not.
We love what we do. Folks often tell us they’re surprised at our level of enthusiasm when they call. In Jim Collin’s best-selling business book Good to Great, we aspire to two critical ingredients of a great company: to be the absolute best in the industry and to be unapologetically passionate about we do.
We offer free regulatory support. Call or email us anytime or send us a picture of something you don’t understand. We love to troubleshoot. If your question can be answered in less than 5 minutes (98% of the time), it’s free on us.
We always call you back. We try whenever possible to return calls and emails with the hour and nearly always within 24 hours.
We have loyal customers. Many of our customers are long-term UST operators who like what we offer and word gets out. So we rely on attraction rather than promotion. We’re proud to have built our customer base on referrals rather than traditional marketing and advertising.
