Recently, 47 energy professionals within the CountryMark cooperative system completed an intensive three-day fuels and lubricants training program hosted by Indiana-based CountryMark. Petroleum Introductory Training, also known as PIT Stop, is an annual program designed to educate newly-hired CountryMark and member cooperative employees about proprietary CountryMark products and services.  The program is also offered to more seasoned employees   wishing to refresh their knowledge of the energy industry.

Held in Evansville, Indiana, PIT Stop provides participants with technical expertise that will help them better serve their fuel and lubricant customers.  Program curriculum includes training on the following topics: premium diesel fuels, Top Tier gasoline, premium lubricants, the Total Analysis lube scan program, and a history of CountryMark’s farmer-owned cooperative system.

Beyond classroom instruction, participants also toured an Indiana oil field, a CountryMark crude oil tank battery, and the CountryMark oil refinery located in Mt. Vernon, Indiana.

“For more than 30 years CountryMark has been hosting this,” said Jon Lantz, CountryMark Vice President of Marketing. “We think it is valuable to show new employees what makes CountryMark fuels unique and different in the marketplace. We want our energy professional to be fully prepared to answer questions customers may have about CountryMark fuels or lubricants.
