Three courses are currently offered within the scheme. Permanent employees of EEMUA member companies are entitled to a 20% discount off all standard course fees. Training documentation, examination fees and certificates, plus residential accommodation with full board are included in the (ex-VAT) prices shown below.

EEMUA 159 TankIntro is a training-only course providing an introduction to industrial-scale storage tanks. It gives attendees a basic understanding of the different tank designs, and how tanks should be inspected, assessed, operated, maintained and repaired, without going into the detailed calculations. Download overviews in English or Dutch.

EEMUA 159 TankInspector is a training and competency course that will enable attendees to gain an understanding about the inspection requirements during various stages of the tank service life – construction, operation, repair / maintenance and demolition.

EEMUA 159 TankAssessor is a training and competency course that covers key features of tank design and the common problems that arise in service. It also identifies what actions may be taken to avoid their recurrence or to remedy the effects.
