Hodgkins, IL – OPW Fuel Management Systems, part of OPW Fueling Components, has scheduled its first onsite product-training seminar of 2012 for Feb. 28-March 1 in the Parsippany/Newark, NJ area. The three-day seminar will be held at the Staybridge Suites, 61 Interpace Parkway, Parsippany, NJ 07054, phone (973) 334-2907.

The seminar has been 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 a.m. EST and will continue until 5 p.m. on each of the three days. The cost of the three-day training course is $495 per person; application and payment must be received two to three 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 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.

Virtual Training Seminars Set

OPW Fuel Management Systems has also posted the dates and times for its next virtual product-training seminars for qualified distributors and technicians:

• Feb. 10, 2-5 p.m. CST, will focus on the EECO 1500 Tank Gauge System. The EECO 1500 is a multi-function, high-quality tank-monitoring system that provides real-time, accurate inventory information for up to four fuel-storage tanks.

• Feb. 24, 9:30-11:30 a.m. CST, will focus on the AFC™ Fuel Control System. The AFC is a turnkey fuel-control system for small to mid-size fleets that is easy to use and setup. With the AFC, fleet managers will no longer have to wonder when vehicle maintenance is due, where the fuel is going or how to keep track of fleet vehicles.

All registrants must have high-speed Internet access and an active individual e-mail address. Registrants must also download and read the appropriate training guides prior to the seminar. 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 written test on each system. Technicians are required to re-certify every three years and the re-certifying cost is $75 for each test. However, if the technician attends an onsite or WebEx seminar, the cost of the test will be waived.

There is a $100 charge for attending a WebEx training course. A valid Visa, MasterCard or P.O. from the sponsoring distributor and sponsorship by an authorized OPW Fuel Management Systems distributor are required to participate in these WebEx courses. Seminar fees are non-refundable once the registration has been sent. If OPW cancels the seminar, a refund will be sent to the technician or it can be used for a future WebEx seminar.
