By OPW | May 31, 2012

Hodgkins, IL – OPW Fuel Management Systems, part of OPW Fueling Components, has scheduled a pair of onsite product-training seminars for the month of June. The first three-day seminar will be held from June 5-7 at FMS’ headquarters in the Chicago, IL, area, located at 6900 Santa Fe Drive, Hodgkins, IL 60525, phone (708) 485-4200. The second will be on June 26-28 in Dallas, TX, at the Holiday Inn Express, 8111 LBJ Freeway, Dallas, TX 75019, phone (214) 915-9225.

Both seminars are designed to help ensure that service personnel are more effective through hands-on training with the FSC3000™ Fuel Site Controller products, along with providing an overview on Networks. The seminars will begin at 8:30 a.m. CDT and continue until 5 p.m. on each day. There is no cost to attend this three-day training seminar; application must be received two weeks in advance of the seminar. All lodging and transportation are the responsibility of the attendee.

During the seminar, instructors will demonstrate system start-ups and general operation of the FSC3000™ Fuel Site Controller. Attendees are asked to bring a laptop computer and voltage meter to the seminar. This is a required course to certify or re-certify for fuel-control product testing. OPW Fuel Management Systems will award certificates of achievement on systems that are covered during the seminar. In order to receive certification, attendees must pass a mandatory test on each system.

FMS has also scheduled a FREE “live” UST Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR) training session for June 13 in Tukwila, WA, at Courtyard Marriott, 16038 West Valley Hwy., Tukwila, WA 98188, phone (425) 255-0300.
