German independent tank storage association UTV has decided to enlarge its service and product portfolio for its members and intends to introduce a web-based e-Learning tool for the qualification and training of tank farm operators.
The learning platform includes a huge variety of different modules which cover knowledge and learning material for the areas safety, operational processes, product knowledge, technical components and terminal organisation.
In order to achieve this goal UTV has entered into a cooperation with Dutch tank terminal association Votob which has successfully operated the Votob Academy for a couple of years. Votob Academy has developed aforementioned modules which are tailor made for the tank storage industry and currently available in Dutch. In order to be able to use these modules in the future the modules have to be adjusted for the German users and adopted to the respective German regulatory framework.
In order to receive a formal commitment by its members UTV is currently preparing a respective project concept in cooperation with Votob Academy, which will be finally submitted to the members in June 2020. UTV expects to start with the realization phase in the second half of this year with the ultimate target to implement the learning platform in Q1 2021.
