This is a very good training. There are still some issues that need to be improved for better quality results, but overall is a good experience for folks looking to increase their knowledge on API Tanks standards.

Good course to gain a better understanding of the technical basis behind API 650, 653, and 620 requirements.

This was a very good course for someone who needs an introduction to these standards. I found the material useful and practical.

The instructor has a very good anecdotal style, easy to relate to with real-world experiences and able to engage the class. The information presented was nicely captured with references to current documents. Upcoming developments were discussed about the standards, but the real gem was the focus on practical value.

Good overview of API 650, 653, and 620. Touches on key points without diving too deeply into the specs themselves and informs you of what section to reference if more information is needed. Instructor makes good use of illustrations to further explain the text.

Excellent overview for beginners or mid level tank proffessionals.

While I know more about the API tank codes now, than I did before the course, the delivery of the course contents and relation to real world examples was not as good as it could have been. Due to a lack of examples, it was difficult to engage in the material.

This course was a good introductory course for those who have not used them before, or as a good course for part-time users of the documents to get good tips and pointers from a 30+ yr experience instructor.

the course was overall good and informative. i would rather see more materials on structural design, calcs and theory of desiging API tanks.

Very good course, recomended for anyone working with large tanks/vessels.
May 12, 2014, Project Engineer, Calgary
Training was excellent with a variety of information covered. This training could be taken by personnel new to tanks as well those with extensive experience. The instructor really encourages discussion and the introduction of any particular experiences from the students to discuss and help create conversation. Would highly recommend this course to anyone involved in the design or maintenance of AST.

October 18, 2013, NSK Tank Cordinator, Calgary
This is an excellent overview of the API 620, 650, and 653. Jack does very well in comunicating the purpose of these standards which comes from thorughly understanding them himself.

The course is a 10,000 ft overview of the standards. It will provide a basic understanding of Storage Tanks.
