The course is outstanding. You get a good knowledge of blending if you don't have any experience. The theory is perfect, Ara explained anything and more. I suggest to take this class.
From Exxon
I didn't have any knowledge of gasoline blending before. I got promoted to a new role and I wanted to learn more about gasoline bIending. I was skeptical because I thought it was too advanced, indeed Ara explained everything and now I am very confident of what I am doing.
From Chevron
The course was excellent. My goal was to learn and understand product specifications, blend components evaluation and dispute resolution. Ara delivered those concepts perfectly and I used what learned to bring more value to my company.
I had previous knowledge of blending, I was looking to have a better idea on how to select blend components and hot to evaluate them and how to increase profitability. Lee explained this topic very well and we are very interested in the optimizer. Now my company understand the potential of the tool.
