For a limited time, the Petroleum Storage Tank Insurance Fund (PSTIF) is making training available to its insured tank owners and operators free of charge. PSTIF insures more than 3,000 facilities in Missouri.
Educating underground fuel tank owners and operators about the management of their storage systems is a national issue. Missouri is the first state to tackle the problem by offering training directly to the people who need it.
Carol Eighmey, executive director of PSTIF, said, “When the PSTIF board reviewed the Petroleum Equipment Institute's (PEI) online Learning Center, we knew we had our answer.PEI is the leading authority on petroleum equipment, so we know the information is right. The courses are offered via the Internet, so they are available everywhere on demand.”
Anyone responsible for fuel tanks insured by PSTIF can take courses for free by logging onto www.pstif.org. Those not insured by PSTIF may take courses for $79 each by accessing the PEI Learning Center at www.pei.org/learn.
