Storage of chemicals, wastes, flammable and combustible liquids, and other materials in tanks is subject to detailed and stringent requirements. Changing regulations and the overlapping requirements of various agencies, regulatory programs, and industry standards further complicate compliance management.

Environmental professionals, fuel managers, consultants, engineers, and others completing this course consistently recognize the value of this focused training.
